Ellsworth and William Woodward: Impressions of the Southland
On view: March 6 – May 23, 2015
Opening Reception and Member Preview: Friday, March 6, 6-8pm
Impressions of the Southland incorporates landscapes and cityscapes painted by Ellsworth and William Woodward which depict their view of the south during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Woodward brothers were influential in New Orleans and Southern Art, instructing and inspiring young artists for years. To honor their contribution to art in Louisiana, AMoA has combined two paintings given to Bolton High School in 1916 with paintings loaned from the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Historic New Orleans Collection, The New Orleans Museum of Art, and private collectors to present an exhibition by these two phenomenal artists.
