Charles Wilbert White Auction Price Results

Who is Charles Wilbert White?
Artist Charles White grew up on the south side of Chicago, where he was subjected to violence, poverty, and a toxic home environment. Despite his difficulties, he continued to go to school, and in the seventh grade, he won a scholarship for classes at the Art Institute. Charles Wilbert White's paintings showcase his dedication to African American causes, using black-and-white or sepia tones to bring their culture and history to the public eye.

Artist Charles White was among those invited to participate at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s first exhibition of all African American art in the 1970s. Charles White's drawings of historical Civil War era posters asking for information on the location of fugitive slaves, which he depicted as wanted bulletins, are among his most well-known. Find your next art treasure by browsing cultural drawings for sale online at Invaluable.

Charles Wilbert White, 1918-1979, Rep. Rankin (Alias: Swine)

Lot 20: Charles Wilbert White, 1918-1979, Rep. Rankin (Alias: Swine)

Auction Date: May 22, 2021

Estimate: $25,000 - $35,000

Description: Charles Wilbert White
1918-1979
Rep. Rankin (Alias: Swine)

Portrait of Representative John Rankin (Mississippi)
1945
ink drawing on paperboard
16 x 12 1/2 inches
signed and dated, inscribed.
Artist name and address verso, "CHARLES WHITE, 34 BEDFORD ST." in the hand of the artist.

Illustrated: New Masses, July 10, 1945 (Vol. 56, No. 2), accompanying Ralph Bowman's essay, "Roots of America's Revolution", p.7.

Authenticity confirmed by Frances White, as well as the Charles White Archives.

Charles White contributed to Daily Worker, The New Masses and Masses & Mainstream , all communist publications in the 1940s and 50s. This biting satirical image of John E. Rankin, a Democratic politician from Mississippi who served sixteen terms in the U.S. House of Representatives (1921-1953) accompanied an essay by Ralph Bowman, "Roots of America's Revolution" in 1945.

Rankin supported many programs that negatively affected African Americans. He proposed a bill to prohibit interracial marriage, supported segregation and denied federal benefits of various programs to African Americans. A year before White executed this drawing, Rankin tried to lower benefits to victims of the Port of Chicago disaster after learning that most of the dead were black sailors. He consistently discriminated against black veterans in legislation intended to build social capital among residents of the South. Black veterans were denied loans, training and employment assistance under his watch and Historically Black Colleges and Universities were severely underfunded, thereby limiting enrollment.

Rankin explicitly expressed racist views and used racial slurs on the floor of the House. He sought to prevent the desegregation of Veterans Administration hospitals, arguing for treating black veterans in rural, isolated, all-black hospitals. He opposed bills that made lynching a federal crime, arguing they promoted rape and "racial equality would destroy the white man's civilization throughout the world."

He refused to sit next to freshman congressman Adam Clayton Powell and condemned Paul Robeson for inciting violence when a racist mob attacked people leaving one of his concerts.

Rankin did not limit his racism to African Americans, but also included Jewish people and Asians.
He was defeated by Thomas G. Abernethy (who was only slightly better) for re-election in 1952 and (thankfully) died in 1960.

Another well-known image White executed for The New Masses was "Can a Negro Study Law in Texas" (1946), pictured in Charles White The Gordon Gift to The University of Texas, Roberts, Blanton Museum of Art, p.6, 8. This image addresses the Sweatt v. Painter court case, in which Heman Sweatt (an African American) was initially denied enrollment to the School of Law at the University of Texas. While losing in the lower courts, the U.S. Supreme Court eventually granted Sweatt a victory. This case was influential to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case held four years later.

Both drawings are executed in what some call a "Soviet social realist" style. In an essay in Roberts' book, Austin-based lawyer and art collector, Rudolph H. Green writes, "Can a Negro Study Law in Texas represents an early example of the way White put his beliefs into action and used art as a tool to attack the status quo as reflected in Jim Crow laws. White created his drawing in support of Sweatt but also as a call to action in support of efforts to promote equality and social justice in America."

That statement would be equally relevant to the drawing, "Rep. Rankin (Alias Swine)", 1945.

CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979) Head of Man - Version II (Diego Rivera).

Lot 17: CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979) Head of Man - Version II (Diego Rivera).

Auction Date: Apr 22, 2021

Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979)
Head of Man - Version II (Diego Rivera).

Crayon on thin, smooth wove paper, mounted to board, 1936. 305x254 mm; 12x10 inches. With the artist's estate signature ink stamp, lower right.

Provenance: the estate of the artist; Heritage Gallery, Los Angeles, with the gallery label on the frame back; private collection, New York; thence by descent to a private collection, California.

This fascinating portait of one of Charles White's heroes is one of the earliest known drawings by the artist to come to auction. Another, very similar version of this drawing of Diego Rivera was sold at Swann Galleries as lot 22 in African-American Fine Art auction on April 2, 2015, and is catalogued as D10 in Lucinda Gedeon's catalogue raisonné.

This early study was likely made just before or at the beginning of Charles White's study at the Art Institute of Chicago. White was determined to become an artist despite his family's tight finances, and early rejections from discriminatory art schools. White won a $240 scholarship to attend the Chicago Art Institute, entering in 1937. White completed the two year course in one year, despite often walking the 60 blocks home to save money and working as a cook and valet. Upon his graduation in 1938, he soon qualified to join the easel and mural divisions of the Federal Art Project in Illinois.

Diego Rivera's international fame and the rise of the Mexican muralists made a profound impact on Charles White and many other social realists' art work. In the mural divison of the FAP, White worked with muralists Mitchell Siporin and Edward Millman who both had assisted Rivera on murals in Mexico. Later in 1947, upon winning a Rosenwald scholarship to travel and study in Mexico, White met Diego Rivera and studied with David Alfaro Siqueiros at the Esmeralda Escuela del Arte and the Taller de Gráfica Popular in Mexico City. Curiously, despite a strong resemblance, an identification of Rivera was never made with this drawing.

Auction Date: Apr 22, 2021

Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000

Description: CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979)
Pope X.

Etching on cream wove paper, 1972. 475x700 mm; 18 3/4x27 1/2 inches, wide margins. Artist's proof, one of only 3 signed artist's proofs, from a total of 19 signed prints. Signed, titled, dated and inscribed "A/P" in pencil, lower margin. Printed by Joseph and Hugo Mugnani, Los Angeles.

Provenance: Joseph Mugnani, Los Angeles; thence by descent, private collection, California.

A superb impression of this large and very scarce etching - we have not seen another impression at auction since a signed trial proof was sold at Swann Galleries on February 19, 2008. Gedeon notes while the prints were numbered /25, there were only 12 signed impressions, 3 signed artist's proofs and 4 signed trial proofs, with two estate-stamped proofs. Another impression printed in brown ink, numbered 3/25, is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

The subject of the etching anticipates Charles White's painting Black Pope (Sandwich Board Man), oil wash on board, 1973, acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in 2013. Curator Esther Adler in her 2017 monograph Charles White Black Pope describes how the idea of a black pope was floated in 1970s media, including a 1973 Encore magazine article, a copy of which is found in Charles White's papers at the Archives of American Art. Adler pp. 32-33; Gedeon Ec9.

Charles White, 1918-1979, Portrait of a Man in a Green Jacket, Watercolor on cream wove paper, 7.25 x 9.5 inches

Lot 71: Charles White, 1918-1979, Portrait of a Man in a Green Jacket, Watercolor on cream wove paper, 7.25 x 9.5 inches

Auction Date: Nov 14, 2020

Estimate: $5,000 - $7,000

Description: Charles White
1918-1979
Portrait of a Man in a Green Jacket
Watercolor on cream wove paper
1934
Retains Heritage Gallery, Los Angeles label verso.

Born in 1918 in Chicago, Charles White was initially an introverted child, preferring to retreat into a world of reading and drawing. As he grew older, he became more outspoken, influenced by Alain Locke’s The New Negro. As a student at Englewood High School, alongside other future notables such as Margaret Burroughs, Eldzier Cortor, and Charles Sebree, he often clashed with his teachers over their whitewashing of historical subjects. He joined George Neal’s Art Crafts Guild and gathered at the studio of Morris Topchevsky, where he was able to further explore his views of art, politics, and the role of the African American in society.

White graduated high school in 1937 and went on to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He was subsequently hired by the Illinois Art Project in the easel division, but transferred to the mural division, where he worked with Edward Millman and Mitchell Siporin. His first major mural, Five Great American Negroes, was completed in 1940. His work was also exhibited at the American Negro Exposition, winning several awards.

White married Elizabeth Catlett in 1941 after meeting her at the South Side Community Art Center, and the pair moved to New Orleans where they both taught at Dillard University. Two consecutive Rosenwald scholarships allowed him to study lithography at the Art Student’s League of New York with Harry Sternberg, as well as travel the Southern United States. He used this opportunity to observe and paint black farmers and laborers for his mural, The Contribution of the Negro to the Democracy of America.

Catlett and White relocated to Mexico where they both became involved with the Taller Grafica de Popular. After their divorce, White returned to New York City. His work retained a figurative style which stood in stark contrast to the burgeoning abstract movement occurring at the time. He used drawings, linocuts, and woodcuts to celebrate the historical figures who resisted slavery, as well as ordinary African Americans struggling amid great social injustice in a post-slavery America. Despite their small size, these works conveyed the power of a mural.

In New York in the 1940s and early 1950s, White showed his work at the progressive ACA Gallery and was a prominent member of African American and leftist artist communities. White moved to Southern California in 1956, and his career flourished as he embraced drawing and printmaking more fully, pushing at the boundaries of his media while continuing to engage with civil rights and equality. Despite his rejection of the prevailing style of Abstract Expressionism and ongoing use of an expressive figuration, he found critical acclaim in the United States and abroad.

White was the second African American to be inducted into the National Academy of Art and Design in 1975. Charles White: A Retrospective was held at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2018. This exhibition traveled to the Museum of Modern Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 2019.

Charles White, 1918-1979, Life Drawing #8, Charcoal on paper, 45.5 x 36 inches

Lot 112: Charles White, 1918-1979, Life Drawing #8, Charcoal on paper, 45.5 x 36 inches

Auction Date: Nov 14, 2020

Estimate: $60,000 - $80,000

Description: Charles White
1918-1979
Life Drawing #8
Charcoal on paper
c. 1965
Stamped signature.

In 1965, White began teaching at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, and served as Chairman of the Drawing Department until 1979. He was the first African American faculty member.

Kerry James Marshall, in an interview for the exhibition, Charles White: Life Model (parallel exhibit to the retrospective, which showed at the Charles White Elementary School— former campus of the Otis Art Institute, 2019) said: “Life drawing was a specialty at Otis and Charles White was the effective dean of figure drawing. His classes were the most popular, and always full to capacity. Like me, all of the black students who matriculated through Otis were primarily because of White.� (Other relevant students were David Hammons and Timothy Washington) Marshall described the “special Otis paper� used by White in his Life drawing class. “It was large and you got it at McManus and Morgan� (McManus and Morgan was a specialty paper store in downtown LA on 7th street).

Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Degas all executed “basic� line drawings which were meant as complete ideas as well as preliminary sketches in advance of a more ambitious composition (drawing or painting). White himself made the point in an interview when asked about a statement Eric Ray had made about White’s preference for drawings:

“ ...drawing is a particularly exciting medium for me. I just like the feel of it. My whole body is into it when I draw, and I think black and white is as effective a medium [as any]. I don’t know about this preciousness—that oil painting has been looked upon as a very precious medium, therefore it’s the final kind of test. I think, particularly an artist like Käthe Kollwitz proved a point. If Daumier had never painted a picture in his life, he still would have been remembered as a great, great artist. Or Goya. His etchings alone would put him up in a class of greatness.�
—Reproduced in Charles White, Let Light Enter, catalog for the exhibition at Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, January10-March 7, 2009, p. 7.

Perhaps White was speaking more specifically about the perceived painting versus drawing hierarchy, but the fact remains that great artists have always found an important purpose for drawings in their body of work, whether it was a personal shorthand to convey the essence of the idea, a tool for teaching, or simply a preferred medium. As White said in the same interview: “Whatever I’m working with at the moment I prefer.�
