Between 1877 and 1950, thousands of Black Americans were victims of violence in the United States. In an attempt to give a voice to the victims and tell their stories, John W. Wilson worked to address the issues of social and racial injustice through his art. Several lithographs by Wilson will be presented in the upcoming Paintings, Furniture, Decorative Arts, & Fine Rugs sale, offered by Alex Cooper Auctioneers. In one piece, a petrified mother sits in a chair, clutching her child in the corner of a room.
American sculptor Mark Hopkins is considered among the leading artists pushing the boundaries of traditional sculpture by including expressive forms. Hopkins’ work has been called “bronze in motion” for its use of sculptural gestures. In his words, “I strive to express beyond the image, to catch the spirit, to reveal deeper emotions, and to share joy.” A bronze sculpture by Hopkins is among the leading lots in this event, portraying children hanging upside down from monkey bars. Also available in this sale is a Serapi carpet from Persia that can be traced back to the 19th century. These hand-knotted rugs were woven with silky wool to obtain quality and durability.
