Virginia Paccassi was born in 1921 and attended college in both Iowa and Oklahoma prior to receiving a scholarship to the New Orleans Art School in 1941. In 1944, her work was included in the Metropolitan Museum’s first Pepsi-Cola Exhibition and subsequently she was sponsored by Contemporary Arts in 1945 for her first one-woman show in New York.
For a brief period, Paccassi and her husband, printmaker Lowell Naeve, traveled the country giving lectures and demonstrations on the art of printmaking. The painting offered here is a charming and rare view of the Barracks Street Wharf and environs beyond, including a grocery, a cemetery, iron lace balconies and a colorful laundry line.
