Sarah Ann resided in Texas from 1852 to 1856 and her artistic representations of Austin, San Antonio and the surrounding areas are some of the finest depictions of Pre-Civil War Texas extant. Her paintings and journal are particularly important because they represent a woman’s perspective of Texas, a view point which is rare. A handsome presentation of an important work.
