"Robert Frank: A Retrospective from the Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston"
2001-07-14 until 2001-10-14
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Houston, TX, USA

Robert Frank: A Retrospective from the Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston brings together Frank's searing views of America in the mid-1950s. These photographs are shown in the context of his early photographs of Europe in the late 1940s and the late Polaroid self-portraits and prints of his family and homes in New York and Nova Scotia.

Robert Frank sucked a sad poem right out of America, as the Beat Generation writer Jack Kerouac remarked in the introduction to The Americans.

In September, the MFAH film department will present a program of Frank's films, including About Me: A Musical, a 1971 film that has been restored by the museum through a challenge grant from the American Film Institute and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
