FROM THE ESTATE OF Prentiss Taylor Lithograph 1949 Saturday Night Polka

Prentiss Taylor (1907 – October 7, 1991), the artist whose life and art reflected social political subjects as well as personal philosophical beliefs.
Considered one of the major non African American figures to be involved with the Harlem Renaissance, his art of this period was reflective of the struggles of the movement. Many subjects of his etchings were mirrors of the hatred and struggles as well as the excitement of this hugely influential African American Art Movement of the early 20th C.
His art after this period became reflective of his personal aesthetic and philosophical views.
Taylor moved to Washington DC where he taught at American University. Many of his pieces are in the Corcoran Gallery and the Smithsonian Institution as well as private and other major institutions.

Sturgis Antiques is very happy and proud to have the honor of showing and selling not only lithographs of Prentiss Taylor but also many other artist that were a part of his art circles, with many contemporaries that not only shared his views of life and art but who were also his mentors that helped push his art to the level and heights he is noted for.
