Biography Louis Collas
Louis Antoine Collas was the best of the
French portrait artists to take up residence in New Orleans in the
1820s. Classically trained in Paris where he exhibited at the Salon,
Collas painted both portrait miniatures and traditional oil portraits.
His clients in New Orleans were wealthy plantation owners and prominent
residents of the city. Characteristic of Classical French portraiture, Collas depicts
his subjects in such a manner which conveys the sitters' rank in New
Orleans society at that time.
