brief review of the McNay Art Museum

Posted on

The Washerwoman - Renoir

  • The impressive McNay Museum in San Antonio, Texas, housed in Marion Koogler McNay’s stunning Spanish Colonial Revival-style mansion, opened in 1954 as the first museum of modern art in Texas. It has a magnificent compilation of 19th- and 20th-century European and American art, sculpture, one of the best prints and drawings collections, and the amazing Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts featuring set and costume designs and rare books.

  • Don’t miss the delightful interior courtyard, complete with colorful tilework, fountain, lily pond, and Pierre Auguste Renoir’s fabulous bronze statue, The Washerwoman. For lunch or dinner try the charming French restaurant, L’Etoile   located nearby on Broadway.
