      Allen Stringfellow, 1923-2004, Untitled (Still Life), Mixed media collage with gold leaf, 16 x 20 inches

      Est: $1,000 - $2,000

      Allen Stringfellow 1923-2004 Untitled (Still Life) Mixed media collage with gold leaf 1997 Signed and dated. Allen Stringfellow was born in Champaign, Illinois, the son of a nightclub singer and jazz guitarist. As a teenager, he designed costumes for his father’s colleagues and painted religious murals for local churches. He was an artist who came of age in the Depression, learning his craft at the University of Illinois and at the Art Institute in Milwaukee before perfecting it as a student and printmaking instructor in the South Side Community Art Center. Stringfellow and William Carter, a WPA artist who became his best friend, veered away from social realism. “I wanted to be an artist without a clenched fist in the air,” he says. “I thought being a black artist would be labeling myself, and besides, I was never mad.” Stringfellow painted pleasant watercolors, exhibiting them at art fairs on the south Side. To make ends meet, he silk-screened store displays for an ad agency. For five years in the 1960s, he ran his own gallery, Walls of Art, where he promoted the artwork of major African American artists, as well as himself. Stringfellow went to work at Armand Lee in the late 60s, one of Chicago’s foremost custom framers and restorers of fine art. This kind of work sparked his interest in creating works on paper and collage. His work often includes religious and jazz imagery. His work can be found in the collections of Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Illinois, the Chicago Historical Society, DuSable Museum, and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

Much of his art depicts either religious or jazz themes that reflect his upbringing. Stringfellow attended the Art Institute in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and his works have been exhibited in galleries and museums such as the Art Institute of Chicago. This collage is an excellent representation of Stringfellow’s influences, with the “Mt. Olive” church portrayed in the left hand corner, and a man appearing to play a jazz guitar in one of the center windows above the YMCA. Source: The History Makers, Allen Stringfellow: Biography.
