This richly illustrated exhibition catalog presents masterworks of Louisiana art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Featured artists include Jacques Guillaume Lucien Amans, François Bernard, George David Coulon, and brothers William and Ellsworth Woodward.

The catalog also features decorative objects such as Newcomb pottery, crafted at New Orleans’s Newcomb Art School at the turn of the twentieth century and prized by collectors for its natural motifs.
