William Aiken Walker Sold at Auction Prices

Naval painter, Genre Painter, Porträtmaler, b. 1838 - d. 1921

William Walker, an artist best known for his depictions of the South during and after Reconstruction, had his first exhibit at age 12 in his native Charleston at the South Carolina Institute Fair. William Aiken Walker's artwork for sale depicts rural farm hands, city dock workers, and scenes of everyday life, which were extremely popular with tourists at the time of their creation, and remain highly collectible today.

Traveling and creating hundreds of paintings, William Walker is one of the rare artists to make a living from his artistic endeavors during his lifetime. When Currier and Ives published several lithographs of his paintings, including plantation workers and cityscapes of Charleston and New Orleans, his place as the foremost chronicler of the post-Civil War South was cemented. Artist William Walker's genre paintings include rural cabin scenes, sharecropper portraits, and portrayals of cotton plantation life, and are much sought after by collectors, who find all kinds of vintage genre paintings for sale at Invaluable.

Biography: The son of a prominent cotton agent, Charleston-born William Aiken Walker exhibited his first painting at the South Carolina Institute Fair at the age of 12. He went to Europe to study art in 1860 but returned to America during the Civil War, in which he served as a Confederate private and, following an injury, as a cartographer. After the war, Walker became primarily known for his prolific Southern scenes including plantations, African-Americans, and dock scenes. Some were commissioned by wealthy patrons; others were produced as souvenirs of the Old South for the tourist trade. Currier and Ives published several of these works as lithographs. In his later years, he painted scenes in Florida and North Carolina.

            William Aiken Walker Charleston South Carolina, Maryland, New Orleans, (1838-1921) Homestead oil on board signed lower left, unframed. This intricately painted family portrait and homestead scene by William Aiken Walker, who worked as an itinerant painter documenting the lives of African Americans in the South, shows us in tiny yet great detail what life was like for a family of African Americans living on a homestead in a wooden home of Creole style. A mother (or grandmother) sits on the front porch with two small children standing next to her, and another couple stand outside around a wash basin and next to another child. Various farm animals roam free: about a dozen chickens (their wooden coop is on the left), a couple of dogs, and a pig. A large cauldron of boiling water is under a fire out front in the yard. We also see jugs, boxes, an animal skin nailed to the façade of the home, red peppers hanging outside to dry, a broom, some boxes, a fence and some laundry hanging on it that had been set out to dry. The genre scene features Black emancipated farmers (former slaves working as sharecroppers) in Reconstruction-era South at work on their laundry day. This painting is a terrific example of Walker's work as he paid close attention to the detail of the lives and livelihoods of those he painted. Walker's father was a cotton agent so he had the chance to travel with him throughout the South and see firsthand what life was like for those who lived and worked there in the late 19th and early 20th c.
