Decorated with moss-draped live oaks, Louisiana irises, and southern pines, the crafts created by the ladies of Newcomb College during the first half of the 20th century represent some of New Orleans' most iconic and distinctive art. Founded in 1887 as an institution to prepare women to be financially independent community leaders, Newcomb quickly earned international acclaim for the striking variety of pottery, calligraphy, and other crafts produced by the students of its celebrated art department. Accompanied by 132 photographs and illustrations, this elegant and detailed study provides a history of the artisans and the artworks that established the Newcomb movement as one of critical artistic importance.
