Oil on canvas floral still life painting, signed at lower right and dated there 1976 by the well listed African-American artist ARTIS LANE (1927-). The work, 32" by 30" (35" by 33" framed) Artis Lane's works (particularly, her sculpture---$18,000) have recently brought significant sums at specialized auctions of African-American art in New York. She is a sculptress and portraitist but has also worked in other media. In the past ten years Lane received widespread recognition. Lane executed portraits of Nelson Mandela, Jacqueline Kennedy, Michael Jordan and other notables, and she designed a bronze portrait of Rosa Parks and the Congressional Medal of Freedom for her, as well. A bust of anti-slavery figure Sojourner Truth has been installed in the Capitol Visitors Center in Washington, D.C. See the artist's own website for much more information on her career. See also in my shop by the artist a pastel portrait of Charlton Heston and his wife, Lydia. CONDITION: as shown in the images, there is some paint loss scattered in various parts of the image, showing as white spots in the photos. A restorer can stabilize and inpaint these areas.
