Nigel Freeman, Director of Swann's African-American Fine Art Department, and Dr. Leslie King-Hammond, author of a new book on artist Hughie Lee-Smith.
Swann was pleased to co-host with Brooklyn Museum an evening honoring Dr. Leslie King-Hammond and her new book Hughie Lee-Smith. The evening also marked the opening of the preview for Swann's February 23 auction of African-American Fine Art.
Dr. King-Hammond spoke to the large crowd about her extensive research of Hughie Lee-Smith's life and career, and the process of writing the book that took her three years to complete. Then she signed copies of the book printed this year by Pomegranate Communications.
