During the 1830’s Parisian artist Jean-Joseph Vaudechamp (1790-1864) spent his winters in Louisiana, establishing himself as the region’s leading portrait painter. He was, quite simply, the best-educated artists yet to have worked in New Orleans. In Veudechamp in New Orleans, author William Keyse Rudolph traces the life and work of the French portraitist. Richly illustrated and compellingly narrated, this volume marks another winning entry in The Historic New Orleans Collection’s Louisiana Artists Biography Series.
