Beauford Delaney (1901 - 1979)
Beauford Delaney used his brush to add his voice to the fight for Civil Rights.
Even when he resided in France during the later years of his life, he remained connected to his home - America, and the plight of his family and friends fighting for equality.
His relationship with James Baldwin, friendship with Marian Anderson, and a steady stream of newspaper clippings and letters from abroad closed the distance of an ocean and inspired him to paint his Rosa Parks series. "Two Woman on a Bench" is one of only three paintings in this important series.
Levis Fine Art is proud to present this important painting and other fine works from the estate of Beauford Delaney.
