Description:

Ellsworth Woodward (American/New Orleans, 1861-1939), "A Courtyard. Toulouse St., New Orleans, La.", 1917, watercolor on board, signed and dated lower left, titled and heavily inscribed en verso, 15 3/8 in. x 20 5/8 in., framed. Note: The iconic courtyard at the Governor Claiborne home at 628 Toulouse Street, with its notable arches, curved staircase, and fan window, has been depicted by many New Orleans artists, including Clarence Millet, Eugene Loving, and Alberta Kinsey. Kinsey, who rented an apartment and studio in the home, painted many varied scenes of the building; additionally, she hosted the first official meeting of the group that would become the Arts and Crafts Club. Ellsworth Woodward, whose drawings and paintings of French Quarter scenes have served to preserve the history of the neighborhood, certainly would have spent time sketching in the courtyard of the Governor Claiborne Home. In the watercolor offered here, Woodward’s light brushstrokes in primary colors blend together to create a colorful scene detailing the architecture of this historic courtyard.
