[The Artists' Association was founded in 1885 by some of the prominent painters of New Orleans for the purpose of fostering the arts in the city. In conjunction with this goal the organization opened a school of art with several instructors, among them Julius R. Hoening. The function of the committee was to select and buy equipment and art supplies, to handle personnel, and to vote on applications for free tuition. Members of the Committee were Paul Poincy, Andrés Molinary, Theodore S. Moise, Bror Anders Wikström, and Achille Perelli.] The volume contains minutes of meetings, accounts, and lists of free pupils. The loose items consist of supply and requisition lists and receipts.
