About The A Visit to the Louvre St. Louis King of France with Page

This painting depicts a historic event whereupon an Objiwe Indian from Iowa in 1845 stands before a painting by El Greco of Louis King of France.  Wooten must have found this topic intriguing, as he painted 58 different versions of "A Visit to the Louvre".

There can be no doubt about this artist's superior draughtmanship, once his subjects' hands are observed.

About the Artist

(Born 1939) "The grandson of a full-blooded Choctaw, Wooten knows the tension of both worlds.

Wooten studied art at the Art Institute of Chicago, which also holds an impressive share of classical art. In the ’60s, Wooten was associated with Chicago figurative painters Jim Nutt, Gladys Nilsson and Roger Brown, who presented cartoon-style narratives often with violent or sexual content. Wooten, though, did not share their style or subject matter, and instead developed his own, more classically figurative style.

Wooten, who now lives in Santa Fe, N.M., also cites the Southwest and Taos Founders as inspirations." taken from www.AskArt.com
