The Art & Life of my Aunt, Annie Truxell
My aunt, now in her 80s, is a well known painter who has lived a long and fascinating life all over the world. We call her the Queen of Bohemia: her adventures have been legendary, encompassing Greenwich Village in the 50s, London in the 60s and India in the 70s. She was friends with Franz Klein, Bill de Kooning, Truman Capote, Terry Southern, Mati Klarwein & many other wild & woolly people. For the last three months, my web designing friend Susan Lee, my brother Bill, Annie and I have all been working on this site: a catalogue raisonne of Annie's work. I wrote the text; Susan did all the hard work of scanning & design; Annie changed the painting titles every five days; Bill bought the beer. It has been a labor of love and it's wonderful to be able to share her work with the world.
