Lula Ameen 1921-1992

The French Market (New Orleans French Quarter)
25 x 32.50 in
(Sorry for reflections on the glass - didn't want to disassemble this nice frame.) An evocative watercolor that really captures the "old New Orleans" feeling. This is a watercolor of the famous French Market, which has been around in one form or another since the 1700's. If you have visited New Orleans, you might have eaten beignets here! Lovely earth tones and deft draftsmanship make this a wonderful memento of the "Big Easy." Expensively framed and ready to hang. Image itself is 14" x 22". 25" x 32.5", framed. I have others in this series should you wish to purchase 2 or 3 as a set to hang together.
