HAYS COUNTY COURTHOUSE, 2013, Graphite on paper.
The Hays County Courthouse sits in the San Marcos, Texas, town square. The inspiration for the drawing, “Hays County Courthouse,” came by way of a request from a former Hays County Assistant District Attorney. Early one April morning, after repeated visits to the Courthouse, a "Sweet Spot View" play of shadows and sunlight was revealed to me. Built in 1908 and completed in 1909, the architect for the Classical Revival structure was C.H. Page & Brother of Austin, Texas. Construction, with Beaux-Arts influences and Corinthian Capitals was carried out by contractors Francis Fisher and R.C. Lambie, using Elgin buff brick, grey brick and limestone string courses. www.normanbeanfineart.com
