601. George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944‑2013), "Blue Dogs on the Red River", 2011, acrylic on canvas, signed lower right, signed, titled, and dated en verso, 40 in. x 60 in., original frame. $60000/80000
Exh.: George Rodrigue: Blue Dogs, Louisiana Governors and Russian President Gorbachev, Louisiana State Exhibit Museum, Shreveport, Sept. 23‑Dec. 30, 2011.
Note: George Rodrigue had a long history with Shreveport and northern Louisiana, appreciating the culture and history there just as much as that of the southern portion of the state with which he was most associated. In the late 1970s, Rodrigue held his first exhibition in Shreveport at a bank, organized by Carl Jones, a prominent Shreveport oilman who admired his work and introduced Rodrigue to the local collecting community. Shreveport and the surrounding area would be frequent stops on Rodrigue's many road trips selling and delivering his paintings across the South.
During the 1980s, Rodrigue's artwork became increasingly well-known regionally and nationally, and he developed immense popularity across the state with his colorful festival posters celebrating Louisiana's heritage, both north and south. He was commissioned to create posters for Ducks Unlimited, first the Shreveport Chapter around 1980 and then the National Chapter's convention in New Orleans in 1985, and he was invited to design the poster for the Louisiana State Fair in Shreveport in 1983. Rodrigue visited Shreveport again in the late 1990s to attend the Red River Revel in 1997, 1998 and 1999, creating the official poster each year for sell-out crowds. In 2011, Rodrigue returned to Shreveport for a major exhibition of his work Blue Dogs, Louisiana Governors and Russian President Gorbachev at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum, featuring paintings from the permanent collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art, private collectors and the artist's personal archives.
The work offered here, “Blue Dogs on the Red River” was created by the artist as the archetype of the 2011 exhibition, celebrating the city and the artist's love of Louisiana. The idea of the Red River appealed on multiple levels to Rodrigue, an artist focused on color, design and symbolism and one who always displayed a sense of humor. He had throughout his career painted Louisiana - its rivers, roads, oak trees, and people (or their Blue Dog counterparts) as individual elements blended into a cohesive whole, nowhere more evident than in this masterful painting from the height of his mature style.

Note: Birmingham-based artist, Edith Harker Frohock, was part of the Mississippi Art Colony, one of the country's oldest artist-run organizations of its kind. She was a featured instructor there in 1984 as well as a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The work offered here showcases Frohock's talent for composition and color. Wild blues and oranges are anchored onto the canvas by a block of red paint which subtly ties together the hectic melange.

612. Martha Wright Ambrose (American/New Orleans, 1914‑2000), "Tujague's Restaurant, Decatur St., French Quarter", watercolor on paper, signed lower right, 15 in. x 22 1/4 in., framed. $1000/1500
Note: Only recently were the works of Martha Wright Ambrose discovered by a friend, Scott Veazey, who had purchased the late artist's former home. In it he found countless oils and watercolors spanning the arc of the elusive artist's career. The discovery of such a sizeable collection naturally led to academic and art historical interest, and the late Ambrose would become the subject of an overdue and impressive monograph, a joint effort between renowned local author, Roulhac Toledano, and Veazey published in 2016.
Guatemalan-born Ambrose moved to New Orleans at the age of eight and started formally studying art in 1931 after winning a yearlong scholarship to the New Orleans Arts and Crafts Club's art school. This twist of fate would pique her interest in art and change the trajectory of her life.
Ambrose moved to New York with the thought of pursuing acting, but she soon abandoned those ambitions and enrolled at the Art Students League in 1944, eventually meeting Jack Ambrose and marrying him in 1946. Upon her return to New Orleans, Ambrose struggled as her artistic ambitions were quelled by predominating social norms and the pressure to be a housewife. It would be the unfortunate event of the death of her husband, Jack, in 1961 that would provide Ambrose with the freedom to pursue her passion for art.
Ambrose's works cover many decades and subject matters from local city scenes documenting New Orleans architecture, as seen the lot offered here, to portraits, to her travels around the world. As she was relatively unknown during her lifetime, Ambrose's works very rarely become available.

613. Morris Henry Hobbs (American/New Orleans, 1892‑1967), "Tending the Garden, Vieux Carre Patio", oil on canvas, signed lower left, stamped "Devoe" on stretcher bar, 18 in. x 14 in., period frame. $3000/5000
Provenance: Estate of the artist, Mandeville, LA; descended in the family.



614. Clarence Millet (American/Louisiana, 1897‑1959), "Italian Houses (Sketch)", oil on canvas board, signed lower right, titled and "Art Association of New Orleans" label with title and artist information en verso, 11 in. x 13 in., framed. $4000/6000
Note: Clarence Millet was a founding member of the Arts and Crafts Club of New Orleans in 1992, and subsequently a charter member of their offshoot, the New Orleans Art League, in 1925. Beyond the French Quarter associations and clubs, Millet also belonged to the New Orleans Art Association and other artist associations throughout the country, resulting in his work being widely exhibited both in solo and group shows nationally. The New Orleans Art Association exhibition label on the back of this painting indicates that Millet was living at 1240 N. Galvez Street at the time of exhibiting this work. This address was the artist's first permanent residence in New Orleans, upon his return from New York in 1925. He set up his studio in the same building as Alexander Drysdale, next to a Chinese laundry in Exchange Alley, later renting space at 628 Toulouse Street in the Governor Claiborne House where Alberta Kinsey had her studio. Millet's atmospheric plein-air brushwork and bright palette perfectly portray New Orleans life in the early to mid-twentieth century, as seen in "Italian Houses" offered here. Many Italians settled in apartments of the French Quarter near Decatur Street in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, an area which for awhile was locally known as "Little Italy", likely this scene captured by Millet here.

The Tenth Dorothea Lange‑Paul Taylor Prize. Durham, NC: The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, 2001. (8 pcs.) $1200/1800
Note: In the lot offered here, Deborah Luster's photographs of prisoners are printed on metal in the manner of tintypes, durable snapshots popularized in the 1860s and 1870s. Luster plays with the concept of “the gaze,” instructing her subjects to bring personal objects and pose however they wish - defining themselves as individuals within a system that arguably robs them of their identity and agency. While the viewer observes each photo, the subject in turn stares back. “I wanted the photos to be handled by viewers and to suggest the history of the penal system…touching the faces of Louisiana's “invisible” population.”
