European Art 1900–1975 is the first in a series of installations highlighting outstanding works of art that span the Modern era. Conceived to highlight the Museum’s exceptional holdings and important loans, this installation includes collection favorites, rarely seen masterpieces, and recent acquisitions.

Works on display range from early portraits by Robert Delaunay and Henri Matisse; to signature paintings and works on paper by Pablo Picasso that define Cubism and its legacy; to forays into Surrealism by Max Ernst, Joan Miró, and Yves Tanguy, among others. The post-World War era in European art is introduced through works by Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana, and Alberto Giacometti—artists who test the limits of their chosen materials, as well as the tension between representation and abstraction. Also on view for the first time in these galleries are major works by Anthony Caro and Judit Reigl that are new to Houston audiences.
