Description: New Orleans School, late 19th c., "Saenger Halle, Lee Circle, New Orleans", 1890, oil on board, monogrammed "G.S.", dated "II/90" and inscribed "NOLA" lower left, 18 1/2 in. x 24 1/2 in., period frame. Provenance: Gaspar Cusachs, entrepreneur, historian and collector, (1855-1929); The Gaspar Cusachs Collection, loaned to the Louisiana State Museum, New Orleans, LA (c. 1909-2016). Note: In February of 1890, the city of New Orleans was host to the Twenty-Sixth North American Saenger Bund festival, also called Saengerfest. Builders of the Saenger Halle, a structure specifically erected for the purpose of housing the Saengerfest, had begun construction in late 1889. Located across from the Lee Circle monument with its main façade on St. Charles Avenue, the building was demolished after the German singing festival. Few visual representations, including an 1890 photograph of the interior in the collection of the New Orleans Public Library and the current lot, remain to provide a detailed view of the Saenger Halle as it appeared in 1890.
