“American decorative arts and paintings”
Bayou Bend is the American decorative arts wing of the MFAH. Displayed in the former home of Houston civic leader and philanthropist Ima Hogg (1882–1975), the collection is one of the finest showcases of American furnishings, silver, ceramics, and paintings in the world.
