Earvin LaCour painted Melrose Trilogy on a door made out of cypress wood hundreds of years old. It was discarded from Melrose Plantation in Natchitoches, Louisiana- a plantation built by and for free people of color that, in the early 1900s, housed notable artists, authors and historians. Its front porch is depicted in the left panel of the painting. The middle panel is a rendering of a famous portrait of Nicolas Augustine Metoyer, the patriarch of the Cane River Creole Community. Metoyer donated the land on which St. Augustine Catholic Church, portrayed in the right panel, now stands. Melrose Trilogy is a 14x22 limited edition
print meaning only 250 were made. The value of the print has been estimated at $125, but is being sold at a special price of $75. The print comes with a certificate of authentication and signed by the artist.
