For decades, there have been few photographic images of Harriet Tubman depicting how the abolitionist and Civil War spy looked in her lifetime.
Now there’s one more.
New York City auction house Swann Galleries has announced that it will auction a newly discovered photo of Tubman March 30.
Kate Clifford Larson, author of the biography “Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero,” estimated that Tubman was between 43 and 46 years old when the photo was taken, placing it shortly after the end of the Civil War. At the time, Tubman was living in Auburn, where she had purchased land in 1859 from then-Sen. William H. Seward — land that will soon become the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park.
Larson said that in her 20 years of researching Tubman, she’s been sent dozens of photos of black women by people claiming to have discovered a new image of the soon-to-be face of the $20. But not one has actually depicted Tubman.
Alfred Cornfield’s gallery is housed in an apartment within a nineteenth century building of a Berlin bourgeois district. He defines it “collectors lounge” since he conceived it as a familiar vibe meeting place for art lovers. The home-gallery summarizes the concept of Gesamtkunstwerk, that is the one of total work of art, as a synthesis of art, design, light and color.
Look what arrived! These are the McKelvie cover prints I ordered from the WicDiv show at Leeds Gallery. I think the ECCC Ananke variant will forever be one of my favorites. The Dionysus headshot and off-center Persephone are very close seconds though. 😈😇❤️
Bukchon Hanok Village is traditional Korean Village in Seoul, featuring numerous alley ways, and traditional Korean homes, known as Hanoks. The village has been preserved for 600 years, and reflects what Korean neighbourhood life was like during the Joseon dynasty.
While the village was not created for tourists, and is still fully inhabited by local families, it is a great place for international tourists and younger Koreans to visit, to learn more about the Korean culture. Some of the Hanoks house galleries, restaurants, and craft workshops.
