Luis Graner y Arrufi (Spanish, 1863-1929, act. New Orleans, 1914-1922), "The Artist, Portrait of Charles Wellington Boyle", 1916, oil on canvas, signed and inscribed "To my friend, C.W. Boyle" lower right, dated and inscribed "Owned by Dr. I.M. Cline" en verso, 30 in. x 23 in., framed. Note: This impressionistic and sensitively rendered portrait depicts the Louisiana artist Charles Wellington Boyle. Boyle was a successful landscape painter active in New Orleans in the late 19th and early 20th c. Raised in Lewisburg on the north shore, his home was a turn-of-the-century gathering place for artists such as Ellsworth and William Woodward, Alexander Drysdale and Andres Molinary. Boyle was a founder of the Southern Art Union and the Artists’ Association of New Orleans. He was the first curator of the Delgado Museum of Art and later its director. Boyle is depicted painting in his studio, a palette in his hand, with an iconic composition of moss-laden oak trees upon the easel. Interestingly, this painting belonged to Dr. Isaac M. Cline, an early advocate, dealer and collector of Louisiana painters.
