Frederick Mershimer
Sanctuary (St. Anthony's Garden at rear of St. Louis Cathedral on Royal Street)

$1,200

About

This French Quarter garden is a serene haven with a lighted statue of Christ that exists not very far from the raucous revelry of New Orleans' Bourbon Street. William Faulkner lived and wrote "Soldier's Pay", his first novel in 624 St. Peter St on the right of St. Anthony's Garden. Tennessee Williams lived at 710 Orleans where he wrote "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Camino Real". Williams saw this exact view from his second story balcony at this address. "Sanctuary" is part of the collection of Georgetown University and was illustrated in the tome, "Printmaking in New Orleans" published by The Historic New Orleans Collection. It is #59 in the Retif and Salzer catalogue raisonne.
