The Camfield Collection is owned by William and Virginia Camfield. Bill and Ginny came to Houston in 1964 when Bill was invited by John and Dominique de Menil to join the small art history department which they supported at the University of St. Thomas. In 1970, he joined the Department of Art and Art History at Rice University, where he remained as Professor of Art History for decades, during which time the art community in Houston grew dramatically. Among Professor Camfield’s publications are significant works on Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, and Francis Picabia, including the Picabia catalogue raisonné that is nearing completion. The Camfields have considered several Houston artists among their close friends, and through his publications, Bill has worked with many important artists and collectors of the early 20th century.
