This beautiful image of a Louisiana landscape brings to life the peaceful serenity of the South in the early days of the 20th century. Ellsworth Woodward found inspiration in the coastal areas of Louisiana and Mississippi and this piece is an outstanding example of his expressive technique utilizing a bright, light-drenched palette. Born in Seekonk, Massachusetts, Ellsworth Woodward attended the Rhode Island School of Design and then traveled to Munich to study with Car Marr, Richard Fehr and Samuel Richards. Although he painted oils and made etchings, Ellsworth preferred watercolors and in 1936 the Fine Arts Council established a prize in his name.
