R. W. Norton Art Gallery, The
4747 Creswell Avenue
Statement of Purpose
A museum of American and European art spanning over four
centuries, spotlighting art of the American West by Frederic Remington
and Charles M. Russell.
The R.W. Norton Gallery of Art in
Shreveport Louisiana was established
by Mrs. Norton in 1946 in honor of Mr. Norton.
The Art Gallery in Shreveport
Louisiana, over time began to amass a
significant collection of fine art.
In 1946, to honor Mr. Norton and for
the benefit of the community,
Richard W. Norton, Jr. (1919-1974) and his mother, Mrs. Richard W.
Norton (1886-1975) created the R.W. Norton Art Foundation.
In turn, the Foundation eventually
established the R.W. Norton Art
Gallery, basing its initial collection upon donations from the
acquisitions of the Nortons.
Today, due to the on-going efforts of
the Board of Control, the
Foundation's work and the Gallery's offerings continue to expand, grow,
and contribute to their community.
