9780917860485: George L. Viavant: Artist of the Hunt

Inspired by the bayous, marshes, and lagoons of southern Louisiana, artist George Louis Viavant (1872-1925) produced exquisite paintings of the birds, fish, and small game that he knew so well from years spent hunting on his family's property just outside of New Orleans. The illustrated biography relates the story of a man whose work won acclaim from hunters both in Louisiana and other parts of the country. He studied under prominent artist and sculptor Achille Perelli and, like Perelli, specialized in nature morte paintings. His meticulous watercolors expertly capture each feather and fin of his subject, which he depicted, after the hunt, hanging from a small cord or string. Here was the bounty of the hunt, as realistic as the bird or fish itself.

Author George E. Jordan has used the Viavant family papers in the holdings of The Historic New Orleans Collection to trace the family's history and to describe Viavant's life as an artist of the hunt. Mr. Jordan also presents an analysis of the artist's works, placing Viavant's paintings in the context of the art world in New Orleans in the early 20th century. The book is illustrated with reproductions of numerous works by Viavant---including paintings by George's daughter Ruby---from the holdings of local museums and private collections.
