The world in paint, pencil, pastel…

Since the first acquisitions in 1933, the art collection has grown to some 8,000 art objects. PPHM holds the finest Southwestern American art collection between Fort Worth and Santa Fe, reflecting collecting taste in the Panhandle-Plains region. Both the Santa Fe and Taos art colonies are well represented, and the museum has the most comprehensive historic Texas art collection in the state. Galleries feature the permanent collection in five subject areas: Texas artists Frank Reaugh, “the Dean of Texas Artists”; H. D. Bugbee, “the Charlie Russell of Texas”; Texas, pre-1950; Southwestern, mainly New Mexico and Western illustrators; and Graphics, Southwestern prints and drawings.
