Title: Gulf South Decorative and Fine Arts Database

The Classical Institute of the South is dedicated to identifying and documenting fine and decorative art objects in the Gulf South and making that information available to all. We believe that objects are dynamic, provocative, and vital to understanding the past. Since the first Gulf South Field Survey in 2011, fellows and staff of the Classical Institute of the South have cataloged over 1,000 objects in private collections dating from the 18th century through the Civil War. The survey spans Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi, and we are continually expanding our reach throughout the region. As cataloging efforts continue, new information and images will be added to this database in order to draw attention to the objects and to the research possibilities that they present.

Title: Painting in Louisiana From The Historic New Orleans Collection

The Painting in Louisiana from The Historic New Orleans Collection consists of several hundred paintings (including oils and watercolors) by Louisiana and Southern artists, owned by The Historic New Orleans Collection. The paintings held by The Collection have a pronounced historical interest, documenting persons, places and events in Louisiana and by implication, the Gulf South. As a whole, the painting collection at The Historic New Orleans Collection forms a visual narrative of the origins and development of art and society in Louisiana.
