Degas House

Shared publicly  - 
 
Out of town guests who attend weddings in New Orleans are often not familiar with a Second Line, which is a tradition that many brides and grooms choose to have in conjunction with their weddings. The best way to understand a Second Line is to watch a video of it. #secondline   #neworleans   #bourbonstreet    #degashouse

The tradition of the “Cake Pull” dates back to Victorian times and is still sometimes done, particularly in Southern weddings. It takes place prior to the wedding cake being cut. Tiny charms, typically made of silver, are attached to ribbons and placed underneath the cake. Typically, the bridesmaids pull the ribbons, but other guests may have the honor, as well. Each charm tells a fortune or prediction for the future and becomes a memento of the wedding celebration. (Pamela Reed Photography)

5-Star wedding review posted on The Knot: "Everything went perfectly with the Degas House. The attention to detail and flexibility to work with all of our various needs along the way was just amazing. The experience was all very personal, and the staff super wonderful to work with. Our coordinator at the house, Eva, was the best person to work with and did just everything she could to make sure the day went just as we wanted it. Her enthusiasm and knowledge really helped take a lot of the worry off of us. They were so willing to help with any questions that came up all along the way. We stayed there, got ready there, and had the ceremony and reception all on site. That got rid of so much potential stress by doing everything there. I definitely recommend to anyone planning a nice and personal wedding in New Orleans!" #neworleansweddingvenue   #neworleansweddings  
At Degas House we are committed to making your New Orleans Ceremony and Reception a masterpiece in our beautiful Courtyard or our elegant Parlors.

The sitter for this drawing was probably his [Degas] cousin Mathilde Musson who was married to William Bell; her eyes are too animated to be her sister (the painter’s sister-in-law), for Estelle Musson de Gas was blind. The drawing has a flavor of New Orleans in the pretty, dotted dress of some thin material, the palm fan, the suggestion of light, the nearly coquettish way in which Mathilde Bell loops up at us, and even in the favor languor of the lines...[“Drawings by Degas” by Jean Sutherland Boggs]

The Satchmo Summer Fest, July 30 – August 2, 2015, honoring the late Louis Satchmo Armstrong and will be held on the grounds of the Old U.S. Mint. This festival is free and features live bands, staring some of New Orleans finest musicians.

Worth the money - Degas was the only Impressionist to visit America, and this is the only house he stayed/lived in that is open to the public. A comprehensive tour of the house (split in 2 at some point after Degas's visit), with an informative video to start, is led by none other than one of Degas's grand-nieces. A wealth of information, not only about Degas, but also the area during the 1870s and the Impressionist movement in France, is offered to the visitor. The art lover and the historian will be both pleased by this visit.

Simply put, this is the most interesting tour attraction in New Orleans. It is an engaging, educational experience that actually showcases some of the city's genuine cultural value, unlike the more famous haunted house tours which are essentially just a bunch of hocus pocus. Highly recommend this one!
