Bayou Bend, Houston's home for America's treasures, offers visitors much to explore: an outstanding museum of early American and 19th-century Texas decorative arts and painting; gardens that preserve the historic Country Place Era of landscape design while promoting modern organic gardening; an education center for all ages; and a research library that focuses on American decorative arts and the material culture of 19th-century Texas.
This gloriously illustrated catalogue introduces readers to founder Ima Hogg and the time line of American style history as represented at Bayou Bend. Rooms are shown in broad full-page vision and curated details. Areas of the garden are highlighted in bold, luscious bloom.
