Description: Emily Hamilton Huger (American/Louisiana, 1881-1946, act. Newcomb College, 1897-1902), "Evangeline", 1928, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, inscribed "Evangeline painted by Emily H. Huger, Presented by Lionel Jeanmard and Robert L. Mouton, Nov. 10, 1928" en verso, 36 in. x 48 in., framed with artist and title plaque. Note: Emily Hamilton Huger was a graduate of the art department at Newcomb College who went on to study with such art world luminaries as William Merritt Chase, John Connah, and William A. Bell in New York. Upon her return to New Orleans, she became a charter member of the Arts & Crafts Club and also belonged to the Art Association of New Orleans and the Southern States Art League among other organizations. Huger was an accomplished painter who embraced impressionism in her depiction of the distinctive Southeastern Louisiana landscape with it’s moss-laden live oak trees. The work offered here depicts Longfellow’s tale of Evangeline, and shows the young woman seated under a large live oak tree. Utilizing a fauvist palette and impressionist brushwork, Huger brings a great deal of energy to the composition. Interestingly, the painting bears a presentation inscription en verso; one of the men, Robert L. Mouton, was a two time mayor of Lafayette and later a member of Congress.
