About

Currently on display in the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum for their exhibit "Mentoring a Muse: Charles Umlauf & Farrah Fawcett" until August 2017.

Probably one of the most meaningful pieces ever for sale by the American icon. Pastel and wash work signed “Farrah” and dated 1971.

Originally from Corpus Christi, Farrah was a student at UT in the late 1960s. She modeled and worked with sculptor Charles Umlauf, and had a job at the Country Store Gallery on Lavaca street, a few steps away from the Austin campus, where she framed and sold art for Raymond Brown. This piece was purchased there by an Austin art collector in the late 1980s.

Greatly influenced by Charles Umlauf’s realistic style and lyrical themes, this vibrant work is a meaningful testimony of Farrah Fawcett’s quest for truth as she made her debut in the art world.
