June is for jazz...
Swann's African-American Fine Art department is doing something new, and adding an auction on June 24th—Out of the Blue: Modern Art and Jazz.
The auction will include both figurative and abstract art influenced by blues, jazz and improvisation, and will feature African-American masters such as Charles Alston, Romare Bearden and Norman Lewis. The exhibition also coincides with the NYC Jazz Festival during a week of historical jazz performances here in New York City.
