Admire the Landscape

Most of us had our first introduction to landscape painting by watching PBS's Bob Ross, the bushy-Afroed, effervescent painter who made those "happy little trees." But long before the lovable Ross, there was Gustave Courbet, a prolific 19th-century French artist whose inventive use of brush, palette knife, rags and his fingers inspired later artists such as Paul Cezanne and Jackson Pollock. Courbet is now a recognized giant in the art world, and you can see his work at "Courbet and the Modern Landscape" at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Few U.S. museums house any Courbets, so you'll want to admire this view, which runs through September 10.
June 18-Sept. 10
