Watercolor, "Lady with Horse," 1898, Angela Piotrowska Wittman
For fellow Southerners and traveling partners, Ann Connelly and Rebecca Vizard, tracking down great finds isn't a Saturday pastime, it's a career. The pair frequently go on international buying trips: Connelly searches for antique or vintage drawings (preferably French and Italian school drawings) to sell in her Louisiana gallery, while Rebecca Vizard looks for textiles. Connelly also promotes contemporary emerging artists. If you are ever in Baton Rouge, her gallery is a must visit, offering a wide range of works.
