Description: William Aiken Walker (American/South Carolina, 1838-1921), "Wood Sawyer (Man with a Bucksaw)", oil on academy board, signed lower left, pencil-titled and "Kennedy Galleries, Inc. New York" label en verso, 12 1/4 in. x 6 1/8 in., framed. Provenance: Estate of Nuala O'Donnell Pell; Kennedy Galleries, Inc., NY. Note: To be included in John Fowler's forthcoming catalogue raisonne on William Aiken Walker. Note: This distinctive and rare Walker portrait of a Reconstruction era African-American man. Best known for his depiction of cotton pickers posing in the fields, Walker painted a small body of work depicting figures in other pursuits or circumstances. This work with a man holding a bucksaw and a basket and having a saw horse around his shoulders is quite rare in his oeuvre. The man is quite dignified in the pursuit of his trade, standing before a building with split logs at his feet, casting a shadow on the verdant grass.
