Having a Cow Over Derrill Osborn's Auction
An abstract Duvan Lopez Yepez painting, among the Derrill Osborn items up for grabs next week.
When my former colleague Christina Rees says Dallas print media needs to get off its ass and properly cover the visual arts, this probably isn't exactly what she means. Nevertheless, I now direct your attention to the 350-plus cow paintings and sculptures and whatnots being auctioned off October 14 at the Dallas Auction Gallery per the instructions of their owner, Derrill Osborn, the former longtime head of Neiman Marcus' men's fashion division (a "men's wear maestro," matter of fact) who wants to clear the clutter from his Oak Lawn town home. And lest you think this a novelty item, well, it did merit a piece (scroll down) in this morning's New York Times, in which Osborn, owner of the greatest facial hair in the history of follicles and an exquisite dresser, explains his love affair with four-legged art: "People don't normally associate cows with elegance. But this is the best of the best in the bovine world. It isn't the potholders, dishrags and ice cream scoops you might imagine."
