A rare and unique experience!
As an art lover, I knew I needed to do this tour. Degas' great niece, Joanie, did a superb job of filling me in on the facts surrounding the artist's visit, his motivations for his various styles and subjects and some intriguing stories of family history. All helped orient me to the history, economies and cultural influences of NOLA in a fascinating way. My favorite tour by far! Thanks Joanie!
