Overview

The streets, landscapes, and architecture of New Orleans spring to life in this collection of 150 paintings by impressionist painter Phil Sandusky. From Uptown to City Park, from Lakeview to the Central Business District, this local artist focuses his creative eye on the neighborhoods of an historic city.

In addition to portraying such tourist favorites as the French Quarter and the Garden District, Sandusky skillfully depicts the city's urban side, from decrepit storefronts to rutted streets. These less-glamorous scenes, coupled with picturesque cemeteries and towering oaks, capture the true essence of the Crescent City. The book also includes the artist's own explanations of the artistic process and how artists convey their perceptions through visual techniques, making this work both a charming representation of an old port city and a journey through one manís understanding of painting and human vision.
