Patterns of Progress: Bird's-Eye Views of Texas
Through February 4, 2007
Patterns of Progress: Bird's-Eye Views of Texas includes important portraits of cities in Texas from the 19th century. These works show what was then a new form of visualizing the land instead of traditional landscape paintings. These works are hybrid, elevated images of cities more akin to a panorama or a map. Used as a way to promote their city and business, the city portraits benefited both the business community and the artists creating them. People were fascinated to view the urban terrain and this encouraged development.
