      JAMES VANDERZEE (1886 - 1983)
      Untitled (Harlem Backyard Banquet).

      Silver print, 1920s. 190x243 mm; 7 1/2x9 1/2 inches. With VanDerZee's "GGG Photo Studio" ink hand stamp on verso.

      This scarce, early VanDerZee photograph is an unusually spontaneous glimpse into a large Harlem backyard gathering. Unlike his posed individual and group portraits, this image shows an artful and informal perspective outside of his studio.
