New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence


New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence 2nd edition focuses on the interiors, furnishings, art collections, and gardens of New Orleans' most eccentric and creative dreamers of the 90s. These bohemian artists, artisans, architects, preservationists, activists, antiquarians, restaurateurs, and teachers lived outside the American mainstream and tolerated crumbling plaster, exposed lathe, and sagging galleries in exchange for communal festivity and joie de vivre. Photographer Richard Sexton documented where and how they lived; what they hoarded, collected, and worshipped. In this second edition, historian Randolph Delehanty weaves together the history of New Orleans from the fragments he saw in those photographs.
