Everett Spruce was the most celebrated painter from Texas in the first half of the 20th century. Spruce received national visibility as early as 1932 and by 1936, arts institutions across the country were requesting his artwork for inclusion in their survey exhibitions of contemporary art. In the subsequent two decades, his work was widely acquired by American art museums from across the country, including The Phillips Collection in Washington D.C. or The Metropolitan Museum of Art. But following this period of success, interest in his work began to wane. The event is free with museum admission.
