With very little formal training, Palmer Hayden pursued painting because he enjoyed it. He flourished during the Harlem Renaissance and developed a more abstract style to represent Black Americans in paintings like Midnight Harlem and Jeunesse. His works are now considered thoughtful reflections of Black American folklore stories, including those of John Henry. A watercolor painting by Hayden showing a New York street scene will be featured in the upcoming Fine Art, Antiques, Jewelry Auction, presented by Helmuth Stone Gallery in early October.
A young woman holding the keys to a wine cellar is shown conversing with a man holding a wine jug in an offered John Charlton oil painting. Charlton was an English illustrator who specialized in military and political portraits, including one commissioned depiction of Queen Victoria. A few black-and-white drypoint pieces by Martin Lewis are also available in the sale, along with porcelain belonging to the Qing dynasty.
