      Louise Brasell Lehman (American/MS)

      Est: $800 - $1,200

      Louise Brasell Lehman (American/Mississippi, 1898-1993) , "Window Shopping at Antique Shop in New Orleans", oil on canvas, signed lower left, partial sketch en verso, 24 in. x 28 in., framed. Note: Louise Lehman studied at Mississippi State College for Women (now Mississippi University for Women), George Washington University, Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. and Columbia University Teacher’s College in New York, where she received a Bachelor of Science. As well as being an active artist throughout her lifetime, Lehman was also a curator and organizer in the arts community of the South. She was instrumental in organizing the first gallery showing at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, the oldest and largest art museum in Tennessee. In 1948, she and friend Louise Clark, then director of the museum, approached Mississippi artist Walter Anderson about allowing the American Association of University Women to organize a traveling exhibition of his work. The exhibition included a wide range of his works in various media and was a smashing success, leading to an invitation for Anderson to show his prints at the Brooklyn Museum. Lehman’s own work was exhibited during her lifetime at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, Mississippi State College for Women, the Tennessee Arts Commission Gallery and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. While she focused in large part on floral studies, Lehman displayed a deft hand at cityscapes, as seen in the charming street scene offered here that captures the magic and charm of the French Quarter in New Orleans. An antique shop storefront is depicted in a bright color palette with precise attention to detail, while the ironwork balcony and partial sign to the right entice the window shoppers to the neighboring courtyard for a teacup psychic reading. Based on period photographs from the 1930s and 1940s, the buildings depicted are believed to be 628 and 630 Royal Street.
