Description:

Ellsworth Woodward (American/New Orleans, 1861-1939), "Evening Rothenburg", oil on board, signed lower left, titled en verso, "Jean Bragg Gallery" label with artist and title on backing paper, 22 in. x 14 in., framed; accompanied by copy of certificate of authenticity. (2 pcs.) . Provenance: Jean Bragg Gallery, New Orleans, 2004. Note: Ellsworth Woodward was known for his dedication to the arts and depictions of familiar scenes of life in New Orleans and the surrounding areas. He also traveled extensively and completed, in watercolor and oil, varied views of cities and landscapes he visited in the United States and abroad. In the work offered here, Woodward illustrates the city of Rothenburg, Germany in the evening. The painting was likely completed after a summer spent in Europe in 1896, the same year May Mount wrote in Some Notables of New Orleans: “[Woodward’s] Bavarian pictures are as full of poetry as of the true expression of art.” In this work, the sun is setting as people meet beside the Plönlein or “little square,” one of the most popular gathering places in the old town. The distinctive architecture of the medieval Bavarian community has changed very little since the time of this painting, owing to some of the earliest laws prohibiting demolition and new construction. The scene may seem familiar to many as these exact buildings were used as template for the classic animated film Pinocchio.Ref.: Bragg, Jean Moore and Saward, Susan, PhD. Painting the Town: The Woodward Brothers Come to New Orleans. New Orleans: Jean Bragg Gallery, p. 230.
