The scene depicted here shows the boats on Bayou St. John, where goods brought down the bayou from the lake were unloaded and taken to the markets on the Mississippi River.

Note: Beloved New Orleans artist James Michalopoulos’ works are arguably among the most recognizable in the city. His powerful depictions of New Orleans' unique architecture have garnered him high acclaim with collectors both nationally and internationally. Michalopoulos employs expressionistic flair when creating his canvases as is evident in the painting offered here. Armed with a palette knife and bright pigments, he perfectly captures the unique energy of New Orleans by imbuing his works with a joie de vivre that mirrors the city itself.

232. David Sinclair Nixon (American/New Orleans, 1904-1973), "3 Harlequins", 1954, oil on canvas, signed, titled, dated and inscribed "Paris" en verso, 20 in. x 36 in., framed. $800/1200
Note: Born in Bessemer, Alabama, David Sinclair Nixon spent much of his early life traveling between the United States and Europe while studying violin. In the late 1920s, Nixon established a home with his wife, June Prudhomme, in Paris, where he first developed an interest in modern art and became friends with poet Ezra Pound. By 1938, Nixon had settled in New Orleans at 529 Madison Street and 532-534 Dumaine Street, where he and June would live and run a studio, exhibition and performance venue. The Nixons were quickly embraced by New Orleans’ art and literary circles. In the 1940s, Nixon opened the Little Gallery on Royal Street to exhibit his own work and that of many other local artists. The couple continued to travel extensively in Europe, Asia and North America, periodically returning to their home New Orleans. Nixon’s paintings are colorful, often abstract works, inspired by his travels and frequently featuring his signature, elongated nymph-like figures.

240. Clara Weaver Parrish (American/Alabama, 1861-1925), "Profile of a Woman, possibly Anne Goldthwaite", oil on canvas laid down, signed lower right, 19 in. x 14 in., framed. $1200/1800
Note: After studying at the Art Students League in New York under William Merritt Chase, Clara Parrish spent time in Paris, where her technique and style were influenced by the Art Nouveau movement and Gothic cathedrals. These two sources of inspiration greatly affected her work for the remainder of her career. Parrish designed stained glass inspired by the windows in the great cathedrals, yet modern in style, with natural forms, graceful shapes, and symmetrical compositions, working for a time for Louis Comfort Tiffany. Similarly, Parrish’s paintings included stained glass qualities and Art Nouveau aspects, using jewel-tone colors, stylized floral designs, and romantic poses.
Growing up in Selma, Alabama, Parrish often returned to her hometown and completed many paintings and stained glass installations there, overlapping with friend and fellow artist Anne Goldthwaite who spent her summers in Montgomery, Alabama. At least one painting of Goldthwaite by Parrish has been documented and several others, including the painting offered here, appear to portray Goldthwaite’s likeness with great similarities in the brow, nose, and mouth. The two artists’ works have been exhibited together and each leaves an important legacy to their home state of Alabama.

Note: Gretchen Lansford’s professional career as an artist and an art conservator coincided with her husband, Alonzo, serving as the first full-time director (1948-1957) of the Isaac Delgado Museum of Art, now the New Orleans Museum of Art. The couple was active in the New Orleans art community, and Lansford exhibited with fellow local artists such as John Clemmer, Robert Helmer, and Shearly Grode. The Lansfords lived on Governor Nicholls Street and collected art throughout their lives. In the painting offered here, Lansford uses bright colors and expressionistic brushstrokes to portray a late 19th century family visiting the beach.

243. James "Mac" McConnell Anderson (American/Mississippi, 1907-1998), "Shrimp Boat", 1982, oil on masonite, signed and dated lower right, 48 in. x 24 in., framed. $3000/5000
Note: The youngest of the three Anderson brothers, Mac Anderson worked in a variety of media, including oil painting, watercolor, woodcarving, sculpture, and pottery. He was employed by the family’s Shearwater Pottery company along with his brothers for many years, helping to design and produce art pottery vessels and figurines. Having trained at Tulane University and under artists Juan Jose Calandria and William Spratling in New Orleans, Anderson also painted throughout his life, often incorporating themes of nature. The Andersons all enjoyed hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities in the Mississippi and Louisiana countryside and took great inspiration from the scenery for their artwork. The paintings offered in this sale depict a variety of such outdoor subjects; the large format Shrimp Boat depicts a scene of everyday life along the Gulf Coast, while Cat Tails, Green Heron, and Seagulls detail the local wildlife in Anderson’s traditional stylized and patterned manner.

(3 pcs.) $700/1000
Note: Local artist, Robin Durand’s passion for art developed at an early age. His father taught him how to draw and paint during his childhood in Hawaii, and at the age of nine, he began selling his works in Kawaihae harbor for a dollar each. He continued his education and honed his talent in college, graduate school and under the tutelage of Mississippi artist, George T. Thurmond who introduced him to color study.
Durand’s cityscapes of New Orleans, such as the three offered here, prove intriguing in their complicated color palettes and unconventional compositions. Houses, trees and streets blur as if being seen from a passing car, highlighting the fleeting beauty of sunlight gracing rooftops, shining through trees and illuminating the city’s inherent vitality.
