Ellsworth Woodward

Ellsworth Woodward played a pivotal role in the visual arts in Louisiana. Born in Massachusetts and trained at the Rhode Island School of Design, he came to New Orleans in 1885 to assist his brother William in the instruction of art at Tulane University. Within two years Ellsworth was a professor and later the director of the Art School of Newcomb College. In this capacity he promoted the practical application of the arts in industrial design. The most successful effort was the production of Newcomb Pottery decorated by Newcomb students.

Working in oil, watercolor, pen and ink, and etching, Ellsworth was also appreciated as a fine artist and a leader among the arts community. He spearheaded the organization of the Art Association of New Orleans and the Southern States Art League, while acting as a board member of the Delgado Museum.
