Watercolor on paper of a street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, I think Pirates Alley, 19" by 13" inside the mat and 28 1/2" by 22 1/2" as framed, signed discretely at lower left near the fence by the listed New Orleans artist TOM LANE (1916-1991). Lane was born in Toledo, Ohio but became a familiar figure in the French Quarter, painting in oil and watercolor the familiar and much-loved scenes frequented by tourists. This would appear to be an especially fine, and very early (I would guess circa 1950) work, the signature in capital letters different from his later signature. The painting is fresh, the colors not faded. Overall, a fine watercolor painting of the beloved French Quarter for the traveler who harbors fine memories of time spent there.
