  • Elisabet Ney MuseumElisabet Ney Museum Austin, Texas
    The Elisabet Ney Museum in Austin, Texas is the former home that sculptor Elisabet Ney worked in and has been devoted to her life and fabulous works. The museum houses a beautiful exhibit of her portrait busts and other memorabilia. Her studio, Formosa, was finished in 1893, and increased in size in 1902. It was the first art studio ever constructed in the state, and after Ney passed on in 1907, the house was purchased by Ella and Joseph B. Dibrell, to preserved it as an art center that honors Ney and her works. The city took over management of the museum in 1941 and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The museum offers visitors a marvelous look into the life of this wonderful lady that enjoyed her life in the turn of the century lifestyle of an artist and influential woman. She is said to have been one of the most colorful women of her age, and in the state as well. She was married to Dr. Edmund Montgomery, who worked with her to start state universities and the Texas Fine Arts association and even today, are still an inspiration to the many folks that love art and free flowing ideas. In 1892, the celebrated European sculptress Elisabet Ney constructed a small neoclassical studio in Hyde Park, Austin, Texas, a remote and natural place. Her, Elisabet would create sculptures of the great men of Texas, including life size figures of Stephen F. Austin, and Sam Houston, which are located in the national and state capitols. She brought to her new studio, earlier sculptures she had done in Europe, that included King George V of Hanover, King Ludwig II of Bavaria, Jacob Grimm, Arthur Schopenhauer, Otto von Bismarck, Giuseppe Garibaldi, all wonderful works that had been enjoyed creating by Elisabet when she was younger and just starting out. By the 20th century, her studio had become a gathering place for influential Texans, who were just naturally drawn to the artist, her exciting character and stimulating conversations of philosophy, art and politics. Inspired by her revolutionary ideas that beauty and art are and can be, powerful forces that shape a nation and its individuals, those early Texans began to start the University of Texas Art Department, the Texas Fine Arts Association, the Texas Commission on the Arts and many art schools and museum around the state. When she passed on in 1907, it was her friends that saved the studio and the exciting contents by starting the Elisabet Ney Museum, devoted to keeping her memory alive, as well as promoting her ideas and visions for the citizens of the state. The museum strives to continue that legacy even today, with people from around the world coming here to visit and learn. It has become a national, state and local historic landmark, with thousands of school children coming here every year for some of their studies.
