"Hold on to your seats as Bob Graham, sage, master painter, and brilliant costumer, takes you for a ride through the zany, Uptown Mardi Gras 'whirled.'"

--James Michalopoulos, painter and sculptor

"Bob Graham captures all the excitement, mystery, joy, and pageantry of Mardi Gras in his paintings. He is one of the artistic treasures of Louisiana who has celebrated its history, people, landscape, and events for decades."

--M. Stephen Doherty, editor of Plein Air magazine

Laissez les bons temps rouler! It's Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and the crowded streets overflow with colorful lights, coveted throws, costumed riders, and fantastical floats. Artist Bob Graham captures the lively scenes with fresh, vibrant strokes, showing kings and queens, dukes and jesters in their annual glory. Whether you're near or far, these paintings of Rex, Zulu, Muses, Endymion, and more leap off the page to transport you to the heart of the pageantry of Carnival.
