The Peter Blum Edition publishes prints by contemporary European and American artists. In 1996, the MFAH acquired all of the individual prints, portfolios, and books that the Peter Blum Edition published from 1980 through 1994. The landmark acquisition consists of 44 finished projects by 23 artists. Blum himself and Blumarts Inc., the parent company of the Peter Blum Edition, also donated all of the related preparatory material (more than 1,000 objects), providing a complete record for many of the projects. Among the artists represented are Louise Bourgeois, Francesco Clemente, Eric Fischl, Alex Katz, and James Turrell.
