JAMES A. PORTER (1905 - 1970)
Untitled (Dorothy).

Charcoal on cream wove paper, circa 1929. 610x457 mm; 24x18 inches (sheet). Signed in charcoal, lower right.

Provenance: the artist; Dorothy Porter Walker; Constance Porter Uzelac, thence by descent to the current owner.

This beautiful charcoal drawing is a lovely, early portrait of his wife Dorothy, and a very scarce example of a Harlem Renaissance-era drawing by the artist.
