A Quarter Past
With its historic beauty and enduring charm, the French Quarter in New Orleans has been drawing visitors for centuries, whisking all those who come to a time gone by.
For master artist Michael Flohr, paying tribute to the French Quarter is an act of loving nostalgia. In A Quarter Past, his latest fine art limited edition, a couple meanders down a cozy street, leisurely enjoying each others company. They stroll arm in arm, recalling the delightful walks the artist shared with his wife, Mel, during their honeymoon in New Orleans.
It is a timeless love story, and one that includes the city itself. The years come and go, but the French Quarter remains, and Flohr’s Urban Impressionist and Expressionist style adds to that timelessness. Buildings from another era cast dark shadows across the narrow street, protecting the inhabitants from the heat and humidity of the midday sun. If you listen carefully enough, you can even hear the cool, soothing tones of distant music wafting through the heavy air.
