About the Item:

Colette Pope Heldner is an iconic New Orleans painter, and Brulatour courtyard is a subject New Orleans painters have gone back to over and over. If you haven't taken a tour of the incredible courtyards of the French Quarter, you really should. Or at least just walk around and peek into a few! Heldner's old New Orleans architectural paintings such as this are harder to find than her swamp paintings. This is a big, beautiful one. Married to artist Knut Heldner, Colette Pope Heldner lived with him in the French Quarter in the early 20th-century, when it was a run-down area that hosted bums and bohemians only. (In fact, there was serious talk of tearing the Quarter down – perish the thought!). The couple painted scenes of the French Quarter and of the nearby swamplands, and their styles are somewhat similar. They sold their paintings out of a French Quarter shop. Heldner style Colette Heldner’s paintings are instantly recognizable for their exuberant impressionistic style and brave colors. She sometimes placed people, swamps shacks and various water-craft in the paintings, but her emphasis was not on articulating any one thing with great detail. Heldner’s paintings hold a place alongside those of Alexander Drysdale, George Dureau and a few others as iconically New Orleanian. Framed in a nice gold frame, ready to hang. 44" x 22" without the frame. The perfect painting for someone who really loves New Orleans, by a famous New Orleans artist whose work is instantly recognizable to New Orleanians.
