In 1945, Jones received a BA degree in art education, magna cum laude, from Howard University. Earlier in 1941, she painted another local beach scene Indian Shops, Gay Head, Massachusetts, 1940.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: ROMARE BEARDEN (1911 - 1988) Memories (The Train). Color aquatint, etching and photo engraving, 1974. 455x560 mm; 17 7/8x22 inches, full margins. One of a small group of monotypes with unique coloring, printed from the key plate, and aside from the edition of 125. Signed, titled and numbered 1/1 in pencil, lower margin. Printed by the artist and Robert Blackburn, New York. Published by Transworld Art, New York. When Romare Bearden was commissioned to make The Train, he and Bob Blackburn created a new combination of etching and photo engraving to re-create the appearance of his collage. One of Bearden's best known and innovative prints, The Train was then described by John Loring in Arts Magazine as one of the ten most important prints of our time. The print is based on the same-titled collage also from 1974, which is in turn based on the photomontage collage Mysteries, one of the artist's earliest works from 1964. Other experimental printings from this matrix are a series entitled 12 Trains (see Gelburd/Rosenberg pp. 14). Not in Gelburd/Rosenberg.

ALVIN D. LOVING, JR. (1935 - 2005) Untitled.

Lot 128: ALVIN D. LOVING, JR. (1935 - 2005) Untitled.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $35,000 - $50,000

Description: ALVIN D. LOVING, JR. (1935 - 2005) Untitled. Mixed media on collage of cardboard, paper and wood, mounted on masonite board, circa 1976-79. Approximately 1300x1880 mm; 51x74 inches. Provenance: the estate of Ray Blanco, New Jersey. Cuban-born Ray Blanco (1955- 2006) was a television documentary director and producer, and a prominent Latino activist and politician. He was also the President of the city council in the city of Plainfield, New Jersey, and worked with U.S. Senator Robert Menendez. This colorful and complex collage is an excellent example of the large mixed media works constructed by Al Loving in the mid- to late 1970s. It shows the continued evolution of his work away from his hard edge abstraction of the early 1970s, from the sculptural, dyed canvas constructions to more densely layered and fragmented works. This impressive work incorporates torn paper collage with constructed and painted forms of cardboard with wood fragments. Loving included collages in his two solo exhibitions at Fischbach Gallery in 1974 and 1976, and his first retrospective at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1977. Another 1976 collage, Shelly, Fran, Susie and Andrea, is in the collection of the Studio Museum in Harlem, and was recently included in the museum's exhibition, Brothers and Sisters. From 1976–1978, Al Loving taught art as an assistant professor at William Patterson College in Wayne, New Jersey.
