The Hogg Brothers Collection

In the 1920s, Texas philanthropist William C. Hogg assembled a collection of artworks by Frederic S. Remington (1861–1909) that Hogg's sister, Ima Hogg, gave to the MFAH in 1943. Will’s early crusade to collect the work of the artist helped revive national interest in Remington’s art, and today the museum’s collection of artworks by Remington is internationally recognized. These works chronicle Native American cultures and showcase the cowboy as a national folk hero, and the West itself as a heroic battleground for the United States’ westward expansion.
