bc at the blanton!

This is Colonel John Bullock by Thomas Gainsborough, one of the paintings in the Blanton Museum's new exhibit, Through the Eyes of Texas: Masterworks from Alumni Collections. This is a great exhibit, from which we can draw a couple conclusions, including: a) Several of UT's alumni are loaded, and b) Some of them have very good taste. My favorites (apart from the Gainsborough) were Janine Antoni's Lick and Lather, a lovely Modigliani, and a flower painting that caught my eye and drew me across the room, which turned out to be a Renoir. That guy could paint, man. If you're in the neighborhood, go see this exhibit!


  1. I'd like to see the houses in which these paintings usually hang..

  2. This makes me miss living down there.
