John Donnels (1924-2009) was born in New Orleans and began his career as a painter after returning to New Orleans following his service in World War II. Donnels had a gallery on St. Peter Street near Jackson Square for more than 50 years. He lived in the Quarter most of his life and was playwright Tennessee Williams' neighbor in the 1940s. While originally a sketch artist and painter, in the 1960s, Donnels bartered a painting for a camera, and a career change followed. His work, chronicled in a 1999 book, has been exhibited at the Kennedy Center, Harvard University, the Ford Times Collection of American Art, the National Academy of Design, the New Orleans Museum of Art and Historic New Orleans Collection.
