Ellsworth Woodward
Seated Young Lady (by leader of "Southern Art Renaissance")

1892

$750

About

Many of you clicking on this pen-and-ink of a pretty Edwardian-era lady 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. The paper is not in pristine form, particularly at the edges. But if you like this "antique" look you can float-frame the drawing to preserve the character of those rough edges. Or, trim or mat it. I personally like the patina of age. Superb detail everywhere. Signed "Munchen" (Munich) 1892. I wasn't aware Woodward spent time there! Own a piece of American history! Signed and dated June 1895. Proudly presented by Guy Lyman Fine Art, New Orleans, with our firm guarantee of satisfaction.
