Business Description

The Beck Building was created to hold the museum’s collections of masterworks of European art; Renaissance and Baroque art from the Blaffer Foundation; the John A. and Audrey Jones Beck Collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Art; prints, drawings, and photographs; and American paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts before 1945. The building is situated directly across Main Street from the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe-designed Caroline Wiess Law Building. Moneo determined that instead of emulating an architectural style similar to the other museum buildings, the collection of structures on the MFAH campus should be seen as an eclectic compilation of fine architectural design.
