Elisabet Ney
In 1892, Elisabet Ney, a prolific classically-trained sculptor, moved to Austin and built “Formosa,” a remarkable stone villa that served as her studio and home. Here she created iconic statues of Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin, among others. Ney was also a philosopher, a feminist, a humanist and a historian. The museum is dedicated to her art and legacy.
