Description Isabelle: The color so called is the yellow of soiled calico.... It is said that Isabel of Austria, daughter of Philip II, at the siege of Ostend, vowed not to change her linen till the place was taken. As the seige lasted three years, we may well suppose that it was somewhat soiled by wear.Original painting: Acrylic on canvas.
Ann Huey, Dallas Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement I am proud to be from a place where so much talent has sprouted from oil and rice fields and drainage ditches and other toxic goo—Beaumont, Texas—a shady, stinky corner of the state that shares a tendency to mildew with its close neighbor, Louisiana. Naturally, I have made idols out of the likes of big time artists John Alexander, Paul Manes, Robert Rauschenberg (Port Arthur), photographer Keith Carter, writer Mary Karr (Groves), dead singer Janis Joplin (Port Arthur), and a terrific wealth of other-worldly-gifted, interesting characters not famous, but just as unbalanced.
