**ONE OF TWO PRINTS BY THE ARTIST IN MY SHOP** (and a number of other Louisiana prints, paintings and drawings). Woodcut print with hand coloring, 7 1/8" by 6 3/8" inside the mat, 10" by 8 1/4" as simply framed, titled in pencil in the margin "Orleans St.", initialed in the image at lower right "C.M." and with nearby notation "New Orleans", by the important Louisiana artist CLARENCE MILLET (1897-1959). This is a familiar scene of the French Quarter. 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 evenly browned with age. On the reverse backing someone wrote "New Orleans 1949", giving some insight into when this might have been created. See the net for many images of Millet's beautiful art.
