Biography from Broward Auction Gallery: Alvin Carl Hollingsworth, Black American artist, comic-strip illustrator and painter, was born in New York City in 1928. Alvin began drawing at the age of four, and by the time he was twelve, he was an artist assistant at Holyoke Publishing Company for Catman's Comics. A year later he was doing illustrations for Crime Comics. Hollingsorth's paintings dealt with themes of contemporary social issues such as the Civil Rights Movement, women's struggles, spiritual concepts, jazz, city life, time and space and dance. He was also a mural designer, author, poet, and lecturer. Hollingsworth graduated from the High School of Music and Art in New York City and then graduated Phi Beta Kappa from City College of New York with a fine arts degree. He later did graduate work. NBC network hired him to tour the East Coast lecturing and demonstrating painting and to host a ten-part series, You're Part of Art. As a result, he became a widely known figure in the art world. By 1953, he was creating his own comic strip that was nationally syndicated by the Associated Press in one-hundred forty newspapers. From 1980 until his retirement in 1998, Hollingsworth was a full Professor of Art at Hostos Community College of the City University of New York. Alvin Carl Hollingsworth passed away in 2000.

          Equality circa 1965 oil on canvas 76 x 92 cm (29 7/8 x 36 1/4 in.) framed dimensions: 90 x 105 cm (35 3/8 x 41 3/8 in.) signed on stretcher, possibly in another hand LOT ESSAY The pioneering Afro-American comic-book illustrator, poet, painter and educator Alvin Carl Hollingsworth was born in Harlem in 1928 to Barbadian emigrants. He began his career, aged twelve, as an artist assistant at Holyoke Publishing Company for Catman's Comics. He continued working in comics throughout the 1940s and 50s before transitioning to painting and printmaking. With his background in commercial illustration, Hollingsworth was an experienced draftsman with an eye for bold colors and compositions, who oscillated seamlessly between styles, genres, media, and influences as diverse as Henry Ossawa Tanner and Gustave Dore to contemporaries Salvador Dali, Tom Wesselman and Nicholas de Stael. Equality evidently dates to Hollingsworth’s early painting years, characterized by naturalistic modelling and earthy color palettes with fluorescent accents, as well as an interest in found materials and urban life (or, the social inequalities it perpetuates). It is closely related to the artist’s most notable body of work from the period: a series entitled Cry City, the subject of a solo exhibition at Terry Dintenfass Gallery. Using material salvaged from the streets — tar paper the artist found on tenement roofs; fishbones, broken cement, stones, teeth and bits of glass — Hollingsworth presented the city as a psychologically and physically difficult terrain (John H. Hewitt, “The Themes of Alvin C. Hollingsworth,” Black Art – An International Quarterly 2:1 (1977): 5). Compared with the sober, alienated character of many paintings from this time, Equality is rather more emotionally inscrutable. Here, the blackboard — evidently bearing a lesson on the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution — has already been partly erased, and class appears to be in recess. Space is collapsed, figures disjointed. Superimposed over the right side of the board is a portrait of a 19th century man in a European military uniform, whose implied gaze looms over the sea of racially ambiguous but pale faces streaming this way and that. The frontality of the man’s portrait is repeated by the two boys at the lower corners of the frame, but they too don't make direct eye contact with the viewer or the figures around them. (Hollingsworth used a similar composition and narrative device in Group of Children, also circa 1965, sold by Swann Galleries, October 8, 2009, lot 55). Equality, however, shares in the dynamism of Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series, and perhaps also its reticent optimism for the future. Hollingsworth attributes the crystallizing of social issues in works from the 1960s to his involvement with Spiral, a Black artist’s collective founded by Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, Hale Woodruff and James Yeargans. A dozen or so members initially gathered in Bearden’s and Charles Alson’s shared Greenwich Village studio in July 1963 to discuss the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, planned for August 28th. Realizing their galvanizing potential went beyond the scope of the march, the group began planning their first (and only) group exhibition: “Spiral: First Group Showing (works in black and white)”, which ran in May-June 1965 at a rented Christopher St. storefront. (Black and white was chosen both as a universal political appeal and an organizing principle, since Spiral’s members did not share any specific aesthetic sensibility). Though the group was active for some two and a half years, their praxis and unifying outlook were enormously influential on future generations of artists. (This contribution was the subject of a 2011 show, Spiral: Perspectives on an African-American Art Collective, at the Studio Museum in Harlem). Between 1960 and 1970, Hollingsworth expanded his reach to muralism and lithography, as well as hosted a popular ten-part series for NBC titled "You're Part of Art". From 1980 until his retirement in 1998, he was a full Professor of Art at Hostos Community College of the City University of New York. Hollingsworth’s role during the Golden Age of Comic Books has recently been covered by Ken Quattro in Invisible Men: The Trailblazing Black Artists of Comic Books (San Diego: YOE Books/IDW Publishing, 2020).

Here, the blackboard -- evidently bearing a lesson on the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution -- has already been partly erased, and class appears to be in recess. Space is collapsed, figures disjointed. Superimposed over the right side of the board is a portrait of a 19th century man in a European military uniform, whose implied gaze looms over the sea of racially ambiguous but pale faces streaming this way and that. The frontality of the man’s portrait is repeated by the two boys at the lower corners of the frame, but they too don’t make direct eye contact with the viewer or the figures around them. (Hollingsworth used a similar composition and narrative device in Group of Children, also circa 1965, sold by Swann Galleries, October 8, 2009, lot 55). Equality, however, shares in the dynamism of Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series, and perhaps also its reticent optimism for the future. Hollingsworth attributes the crystallizing of social issues in works from the 1960s to his involvement with Spiral, a Black artist’s collective founded by Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, Hale Woodruff and James Yeargans. A dozen or so members initially gathered in Bearden’s and Charles Alson’s shared Greenwich Village studio in July 1963 to discuss the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, planned for August 28th. Realizing their galvanizing potential went beyond the scope of the march, the group began planning their first (and only) group exhibition: “Spiral: First Group Showing (works in black and white)”, which ran in May-June 1965 at a rented Christopher St. storefront. (Black and white was chosen both as a universal political appeal and an organizing principle, since Spiral’s members did not share any specific aesthetic sensibility). Though the group was active for some two and a half years, their praxis and unifying outlook were enormously influential on future generations of artists. (This contribution was the subject of a 2011 show, Spiral: Perspectives on an African-American Art Collective, at the Studio Museum in Harlem). Between 1960 and 1970, Hollingsworth expanded his reach to muralism and lithography, as well as hosted a popular ten-part series for NBC titled "You're Part of Art". From 1980 until his retirement in 1998, he was a full Professor of Art at Hostos Community College of the City University of New York. Hollingsworth’s role during the Golden Age of Comic Books has recently been covered by Ken Quattro in Invisible Men: The Trailblazing Black Artists of Comic Books (San Diego: YOE Books/IDW Publishing, 2020).

          Al Hollingsworth 1928-2000 Woman in a Flower Garden Oil on masonite c. 1965 Signed. Harbor Gallery, Cold Spring Harbor LI label verso. Hollingsworth was born in Harlem to Barbadian immigrants. While still a teen, he worked after school as an artist assistant at Holyoke Publishing Company for Catman Comics. Hollingsworth continued with his own syndicated comics in the early 1950’s while attending the College of the City of New York. He decided later to concentrate on fine art and began painting in an abstract expressionist style. Hollingsworth tended to work in themes - working out his ideas in a variety of media. One of his themes was The Women. “I take my hat off doubly to the Black woman,” he was quoted in an interview published in Black Art, An International Quarterly (Fall 1977). “I wanted people to recognize the pride of women, the spiritual quality of women, the sacrifices of women.” Hollingsworth’s first one man show, Exodus, was held at the Ward Eggleston Gallery, NY in 1961. He produced paintings, drawings, and collages both abstract and representational in style. Among Hollingsworth’s series were Cry City (1963-65), The Prophet Series (1970), and the Subconscious Series. He was a member of Spiral, along with other notable African American artists like Romare Bearden, Charles Alston, Earl Miller, Norman Lewis and Hale Woodruff. Throughout his long and varied career, Hollingsworth also created and hosted the television show, You’re Part of Art on NBC in 1970, was an instructor at the Art Student’s League, and a professor at Eugenio Maria de Hostos Community College of the City University of New York. 34 x 33 inches
