      AARON DOUGLAS (1898 - 1979)
      Snow Storm.

      Charcoal on wove paper, circa 1950-1955. 349x318mm; 13 3/4x12 1/2 inches. Signed in charcoal, lower right. With a fragment of a charcoal drawing and inscription on the verso.

      Provenance: Aaron Galleries, Chicago; private collection.

      This charming winter scene likely comes from the artist's time spent in Nashville while teaching at Fisk University, where Douglas was a professor and the head of the Art Department by 1953.
