        SEDRICK HUCKABY (1975 - )
        Standing There.

        Oil on board, 1997. 457x381 mm; 18x15 inches. Signed and dated in ink, verso.

        Provenance: Merton D. Simpson Gallery, New York, with the label on the verso; private collection.

        This is an early portrait by Texan artist Sedrick Huckaby--after his B.F.A. from Boston University in 1997, Huckaby received an M.F.A. from Yale University in 1999. Huckaby's recent work includes painterly portraits inspired by jazz music and quilts that have been in his family. He has been honored with several awards, such as the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, the Anne Giles Kimbrough Grant from the Dallas Museum of Art, and in 2008, the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship. His work is found in many museum collections, including the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham, NC, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
