Biographical Note

Elisabet Ney was a German-born sculptor who came to Texas in 1872 with her Scottish husband, Dr. Edmund Montgomery. They made their home in Liendo Plantation near Hempstead, although Ney built a studio in Austin in 1893 where she lived and worked until her death. She is best known for her statues and busts of prominent military, political, and literary figures.
