Original Ancestor Painting, 1960-70's Civil Rights Era, BLM For Sale
Original Ancestor Painting, 1960-70's Civil Rights Era, BLM:
Submitted for your thoughtful consideration: This painting is the last and the best of a collection of paintings by an unknown artist. Possibly from the SF Bay area where they were Purchased. All of the paintings were African American themed and had the same signature. I do not know who the artist is or was, however all of the work was very powerful. This piece has this wonderful dreamlike quality. There are numerous faces in the composition. Very ethereal. I believe the painting was done around 1970 and is approximately 27.5 inches by 43.5 inches. There are many layers to the image, such as the speaker and crowd, is this Dr King? Or perhaps a demonstration in People's Park, Berkeley? Some of the faces maybe Stokely Carmichael, Fred Hampton, Malcom X, John Lewis and Huey Newton. I'mhoping someone might recognize these images and share them with us.
