[Hand-tinted color photograph of the New Orleans' French Quarter by Eugene Delcroix; an image which is also known by the title "Patio of Maison Seignouret."] by Delcroix, Eugene A. (photographer)..

Description:

An original Delcroix photograph with hand-tinted color in an original Delcroix gilt studio frame; hand-signed in pencil at lower right corner "Delcroix | N.O. LA" and undated as usual. Frame: H 16.5cm x L 12.5cm (H 6.5" x L 5"). Image: H 12.5cm x L 8.75cm (H 5" x L 3.5"). Image shows a sunlit New Orleans' Vieux Carre courtyard with large vase at lower left and foreground shadows with close background of an arched entryway to a recessed staircase and various plants along a red brick wall with green doors and window shutters. The Brulatour Courtyard is located at 520 Royal Street in the French Quarter. Original backing paper on rear of frame completely intact; handwritten title "Old Brulatour Patio" and a four digit stock number of "#2060;" lacks the original wire hanger and two screws at right and left edges which were removed in favor of brass hanging tab at center of top edge. Photograph has not been examined outside of the frame but else photo and frame are in fine condition. A black/white image of the Brulatour Courtyard from the same perspective appears under the title of "Patio of Maison Seignouret" on page 17 of Delcroix's 1938 book PATIOS, STAIRWAYS AND IRON - LACE BALCONIES OF OLD NEW ORLEANS. With his stylistically unique images of the French Quarter and local environs Delcroix is regarded as among the best of all photographers who practiced their craft in New Orleans, a group which includes Arnold Genthe, Pops Whitsell, and Clarence John Laughlin. Delcroix combined shadow, composition, and soft focus to purposely create a romantic haziness on his glass plate negatives. He then applied soft pastel color by hand to further add nostalgic and mysterious qualities to the final print. Original photographs from Delcroix's studio are now rather uncommon.
