On a trip to Austin in late December 2010/early January 2011 to visit our daughter, we took her one afternoon to the wonderful Elisabet Ney Museum in a strange old house at the north end of the Hyde Park neighborhood north of the U of Texas campus. The house and the art it contains tell a fascinating tale of a young German woman of an artistic bent and privileged background who married a Scot, moved with him to Georgia, and ended up running a plantation in East Texas, ultimately becoming one of the intellectual movers and shakers in the wild Austin of the late 19th century. Highly recommended.
