Ellsworth Woodward
Portrait of a Woman (by leader of "Southern Art Renaissance")

c. 1895

$300

About

Many of you clicking on this drawing are probably doing so because you know of Ellsworth Woodward, who with his brother William Woodward around the turn of the 20th century sparked an arts renaissance in the South, the arts and culture in general having been mostly moribund since the dispiriting defeat experienced in the Civil War. I won't bog you down with lots of detail here since all you have to do is Google his name to bring up a wealth of information about him. He is most famous for his leadership of the arts program at Newcomb College in New Orleans, and its famous Newcomb Pottery (these ceramics now bring thousands of dollars - I have two vases in my inventory). This drawing is very likely from a sketchbook; I purchased it as part of a group of Woodward drawings. It isn't signed, but it is absolutely, positively guaranteed to be by him. A few signs of age but in good shape; some dings along the right edge that will be covered by the mat when you frame. Own a piece of American history! Proudly offered by Guy Lyman Fine Art, New Orleans. Proudly presented by Guy Lyman Fine Art, New Orleans, with our firm guarantee of satisfaction.
