Louis Oscar Griffith was an Indiana native whose studies took him to St. Louis, Dallas, Chicago, New York, Paris and Brittany. Well-known now as a member of the Brown County, Indiana, artist colony, Griffith traveled throughout the South in the early 20th century and executed etchings of life in New Orleans and other Southern cities. His views of New Orleans are heavily collected. He was an early and award-winning member of the Palette and Chisel Club in Chicago and a charter member of the Chicago Society of Etchers.
