Real Estate Art: 6040 Glencove Street

 Robert Boyd

If you have $7.4 million to spare, you can buy this big house just down the street from Bayou Bend. I don't know who owns it now, but they have an interesting art collection.

One can see a large, chrome-plated loop-de-loop sculpture. (I am sure that shape has a name, but I don't know what it is.) I have no idea who the sculptor is, but I'm impressed--I've always wanted to see the wealthy of Houston put large sculptures in their yards.

Here's another piece of lawn art (small in the photo, just right of center). It appears to be brown and shaped like a knot.

There is art in every interior photo, but most of it is stuff I can't identify.

This room appears to have a large Dorothy Hood painting. It's a little hard to tell in this photo, though, so I may be wrong.

The large painting over the bed is unmistakably by Dorothy Hood painting, and the sculpture to its right appears to be a James Surls.

Here is another view of the Dorothy Hood, as well as a small collection of African tribal art.

This bathroom seems to have another Dorothy Hood painting (I would never hang a painting in the bathroom, personally, because I'd be worried that the steam from the shower could damage it). Whoever owns this house appears to be a major Hood collector.

And here is another abstract, loop-de-loop sculpture.

Any idea who created some of this art (except for the Hoods and apparent James Surls)? Please let me know in the comments below!
