Beni Kosh Oil, Meditation on African Sculpture

Lot 0157 Details

Description

Beni Kosh (Charles Elmer Harris) (American, Cleveland School 1917-1993) Meditation on African Sculpture, 1957, oil on found wood panel, signed and dated lower left, framed.

Dimensions: 20 x 15 in.

Condition: Some surface inconsistencies in the panel in the making, some vertical age cracks in the panel at the lower edge which have been retouched. Some minor scuffs to surface.
Courtesy Petrucci Family Foundation: Charles Elmer Harris was born in 1917 in Cleveland, Ohio. In the 1960’s, he legally changed his name to Beni E. Kosh or “Son Of Ethiopia”. He was a student of Cleveland artist Paul Travis at the Cleveland Institute of Art and later connected to the “Sho Nuff Art Group”, a group of African-American artists, and the Karamu House artist group. Kosh scarcely ever exhibited or sold his work. It was not until the end of his life that his works were “rediscovered” and amassed recognition. Kosh’s work is noted in the catalog “Yet Still, We Rise: African American Art in Cleveland 1920 – 1970” and included in exhibitions at the Cleveland State University and the Butler Institute of American Art. The artist died in 1993.
