Thursday's sale of African-American Fine Art attracted a full house of bidders and resulted in record prices for several important artists. Collectors were particularly active, seizing the opportunity to acquire works not frequently seen at previous auctions.
|Charles White, J'Accuse! No. 10 (Negro Woman), charcoal on paper, 1966.|
|One of 15 lithograph & screenprints from Kara Walker's Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated), 2005.|
A large acrylic painting by William T. Williams also sold for $120,000. While prints by Williams have come to auction in the past, Eastern Star was the first painting by the important New York-based artist to ever come to auction.
|William T. Williams, Eastern Star, acrylic on canvas, 1971.|
