Here's another fabulous New Orleans
jewel box exhibit!
Historic New Orleans Collection
New Orleans Drawings of
Gaston de Pontalba, 1848–1851
I still get goosebumps thinking about when five years ago (while on my 2nd trip to their château), Charles Edouard, Baron de Pontalba, excitedly showed these drawings to me while I was visiting.
He had discovered Gaston's works just a fortnight before.
They are to be treasured!
Reconnecting the Pontalba family to Louisiana has been a highlight of my life!
The Pontalba family are guardians of our shared French Creole culture.
