Description

Although raised in California, Warrington Colescott has long been drawn to Louisiana, his ancestral home. In the 1990s, he embarked on a series of prints entitled Suite Louisiana, exploring the history, music, and, especially, food of the region. This print celebrates food culture along Tchoupitoulas Street, one of the longest thoroughfares in New Orleans, and highlights celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse, who is famous for his Cajun and Creole cuisine.
