Original watercolor on paper painting of the famous and iconic Brulatour Courtyard in New Orleans, Louisiana, signed at lower right "F. W. Steck", measuring 13 5/8" by 19 1/4" inside the mat, and 21" by 27" as framed. On the reverse framing paper is written in black marker "Foyer"/Florence W. Steck/(215)789-0966". Online research has revealed the artist to be a talented woman who was born in 1919 and passed away in 1994. She, along with her husband Jack, was a pioneer in broadcasting in the greater Philadelphia area as far back as the 1940's. Later in life, retired, Steck traveled extensively, and I suspect it might have been during one these voyages that she created this fine watercolor. Condition is excellent, though the mat is soiled at bottom and the lower right corner of the frame is damaged (though it could likely be repaired). Colors are vivid and fresh and all in all this is a very nice rendition of the famous New Orleans courtyard, which has been the subject of paintings and drawings for generations. .
