The Historic New Orleans Collection's Laura Simon Nelson Galleries for Louisiana Art are once again showcasing selections from the extensive collection of Louisiana art donated to THNOC by the galleries' namesake. The largest single donation of visual art ever received by THNOC, Nelson's collection is a diverse assemblage of more than 425 artworks, including 70 pieces of Newcomb pottery. Compiled with guidance from longtime friend, collector and dealer George E. Jordan, the collection showcases the talents of many artists who lived and worked in Louisiana.
This exhibition features more than 80 works from the Nelson collection, including works by artists such as Wayman Adams, Jacques Amans, Knute Heldner, Morris Henry Hobbs, Clarence Millet, Achille Peretti, Paul Poincy, Ellsworth Woodward and William Woodward. Several works of Newcomb pottery will be on display, including vessels decorated by Aurelia Arbo, Henrietta Davidson Bailey, Sadie Irvine, Ada Wilt Lonnegan and Anna Frances Simpson.
