Walter Henry Williams was born in Brooklyn, New York, August 11, 1920. He studied art at the Brooklyn Museum Art School under Ben Shahn, Reuben Tam and Gregorio Prestopino under the G.I. Bill. He also spent a summer studying art at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. After graduating Williams won a Whitney fellowship to study in Mexico.

According to the "History of African-American Artists" by Bearden and Henderson, after Williams' four years of living in racially liberal Mexico he "felt the freedom from racial prejudice was essential for his further development." He then returned to the U.S. and began to travel to Denmark in 1959.



Williams moved to Copenhagen, Denmark and became a citizen in 1979. He returned briefly to the United States, where he completed a body of work informed by the experiences of being an African American living in the South. It was while he was in Copenhagen, however, that he created a series of colorful woodcuts of black children playing in fields of flowers. Walter Williams died in Copenhagen in June of 1998.

    Heb goede ervaringen tot nu toe met Catawiki. Het enige is dat ik 2 doeken bij dezelfde verkoper heb gekocht, die tegelijkertijd in 1 pakketje naar me is verstuurd. Dat werd niet gezien door Catawiki.

    De foto's op Catawiki waren gezien het ontvangen schilderijtje erg geflatteerd en het was erg slordig afgewerkt in de lijst gespijkerd. dat viel tegen. Een risico, maar er is nu te veel voor betaald.

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Bedankt voor uw commentaar. Jammer dat uw aankoop toch niet helemaal aan uw verwachtingen voldoet. Wij proberen bij het maken van de foto's het schilderij zo helder mogelijk weer te geven, maar begrijpen dat dat in sommige gevallen toch kan tegenvallen. De bevestiging van het paneel in de lijst is een ander onderwerp. Wij verkopen direct uit inboedels en nalatenschappen en laten de schilderijen (mits niet te erg beschadigd) in dezelfde staat als dat wij ze binnen krijgen. Glas wordt (indien mogelijk) door ons verwijderd, maar verder laten wij de items ongemoeid. Wij hopen dat kopers de foto's (ook van de achterzijde) goed bekijken voordat zij hun biedingen doen.
    Desondanks zijn wij natuurlijk bereid om met u tot een goed vergelijk te komen indien u daar behoefte aan zou hebben. Wij emailen u morgen via Catawiki.

    Pacco perfetto, consegna veloce. Quadro meglio che dalle foto di presentazione. Il tappeto è meraviglioso, sembra reale, allunghi la mano e lo puoi toccare.

    Perfect ingepakt; heel snel geleverd. Schilderij voldoet aan verwachting. Eén ding: de omschrijving klopte niet. Dit is niet van een Belgische schilder, maar van zijn Haarlemse naamgenoot.
