Watercolor on painting of Pirates Alley in the famous French Quarter of New Orleans, 14 1/4" by 5 1/4", 23" by 9 1/2" framed behind non-glare glass, signed at lower left by the well-known New Orleans artist ROBERT M. RUCKER (1932-2001). Rucker is recognized for his contributions to art of New Orleans, the lower Mississippi River valley, Louisiana, and the Old South. Works are included in the Louisiana State Museum and the Historic New Orleans Collection, and hundreds of private collections around the country, the watercolors especially sold to tourists. The artist was born in New Orleans, the son of a riverboat captain. By age 16 he had opened his own gallery in the French Quarter. Contracting polio, he studied with important Southern artist John McCready at the John McCready School of Fine Arts, and he was influenced by Knute Heldner and Clarence Millet. Today works in oil and watercolor appear frequently at auction, finding eager buyers. This example is in excellent condition and is nicely framed in gold. You might want to replace the old fashioned non-glare glass, which would give greater clarity to the image. SEE MANY MANY OTHER NEW ORLEANS WORKS in the shop.
