Passion for Perfection: The Straus Collection of Renaissance Art. In 1941, Edith and Percy Straus of New York City chose to donate their lifetime collection of Renaissance art to The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. This was the first major collection to be donated to the Museum since its founding in 1900 and was instrumental in making MFAH a significant residence of fine art in this part of the country. Mike, a Senior Docent at MFAH, will talk about this collection and its importance to the representation of art’s development during the Italian Renaissance.
