Title: It's A Wonderful Life for a Cow
Location: Houston Downtown Library Complex: McKinney and Bagby
Artist: Catherine White-Swan
Sponsor: Betsy and Hughes Abell

“It’s a Wonderful Life for a Cow” features a scene of the rolling pastoral Texas countryside complete with barn, silo, wildflowers and whimsical grazing cows. From the forehead sunrise, the scene progresses through the day to a full moonlit starry sky on its rump. The artist was inspired to share this vision of peacefulness expressed as a day in the life of a cow.

This cow was sold in the live auction conducted by Sotheby's on December 6, 2001 at the Wortham Center.
