Happy birthday to Houston artist Ruth Pershing #Uhler, born #onthisday in 1895. Here, Uhler—who also served as our curator of education in the 1950s—is painted by her friend, Grace Spaulding John, who was one of the first professional artists active in #Houston. #MFAH #TexasArt #HoustonProud #onview
