Woodcut print, 7 1/8" by 6 3/8" inside the mat, 10" by 8 1/4" as framed, titled in pencil in the margin "Cor. Jackson Square", and pencil signed at lower right, by the important Louisiana artist CLARENCE MILLET (1897-1959). This is a scene of New Orleans familiar to every French Quarter visitor, the Saint Louis Cathedral presiding over the park. Millet is considered an important contributor to art of the region, his oils having exceeded $100,000 at auction, and, frequently, selling in the $20,000 to $30,000 range. Millet also painted scenes in Texas and along the Mississippi River. A member of the New Orleans Art Association, Southern States Art League, he exhibited at the National Academy, at the Art Institute of Chicago, and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He worked in the graphic arts as well, with etchings and woodcuts most frequently seen on the market. This example is even browned with age. Most likely the frame has never been opened since its creation. See the net for many images of Millet's beautiful works. INCLUDING OTHER LOUISIANA ART.
