Elizabeth Brooke Blake, known to her friends as Betty or “Boop,” is best remembered for her fercely independent spirit and witty sense of humor that served her well for 100 colorful years. During her lifetime, she was an East Coast aristocrat, a Parisian debutante and art world pioneer and patron. In 1943, Betty and her third husband Jock McLean moved to Dallas, where the independent-minded Betty began to build her art collection. Harry Parker, former Director of the Dallas Museum of Art, said Betty had “the best eye for contemporary art in America.” In 1951, trusting her eye, she founded the Betty McLean Gallery with artist Donald Vogel. Betty remained deeply involved in the Dallas arts community for the rest of her life.
