William Woodward painted this particular view, from the corner of Chartres Street and Ursulines Avenue several times in the early 1900s. Working from his easel in front of the Ursuline Convent, Woodward had a clear view down Chartres Street toward the St. Louis Cathedral. In the particularly charming version of the scene shown here, he uses a mix of vibrant colors in the highlights of the cathedral, buildings, and cobblestone street, capturing the energy of the bustling scene and creating a dynamic composition. An architect, artist, and preservationist, Woodward strived to create lasting representations of the changing city as he saw it in the early twentieth century, including details of horses and buggies, pedestrians, and atmospheric effects. The work offered here perfectly exemplifies his efforts. On offer in our upcoming Important Fall Estates Auction on September 9 & 10! William Woodward (American/New Orleans, 1859-1939), “Chartres at Old Ursuline Convent,” 1906, Raffaelli crayon on board, 14 3/4 x 19 in.
