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!
