New Orleans Landscapes : New Works by Diego Larguia. 

One of the more romantic things about New Orleans is that it's a place where people come "to be themselves," which often means being artists. That remains true today in spite of uninvited cataclysms and man-made disasters. Diego Larguia is a New Orleans artist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He moved to the U.S. in 1991, studied with Don Anderson, Jerome Weinberger and Phil Sandusky. His painterly realist landscapes are all done en plein air, which means right out in the open, on location. Influenced by such diverse masters as Sorolla, Sargent and Monet, he says his new work "includes paintings done before and after Hurricane Katrina. My objective is to capture that specific point in time and place, just as it presented itself to me, communicating my perspective." -- D. Eric Bookhardt
