Louise Taylor Turner


My friend Susanna's grandmother, Louise Turner, was a wonderful artist who died in the Orly Air Crash of 1962, along with many civic and cultural leaders of Atlanta. The group was returning from a European museum tour with the Atlanta Art Association (eventually to become the Atlanta Art Alliance, which would administer the High Museum of Art). Mrs. Turner's paintings were those of a woman who truly knew and loved the Deep South and its people.
