Abstract:

Collection depicts sculptor Augusta Savage at work and in social gatherings, and views of some of her work, from the 1930s to the 1940s.

The collection consists of Savage's passport photograph (ca. 1931); a view of Savage in her workshop (ca. 1937) working on the sculpture "The Harp," also known as "Lift Every Voice and Sing," that was commissioned for the 1939 New York World's Fair; at the opening of the Salon of Contemporary Negro Art, in Harlem (1939), which includes civic leader Channing Tobias, artist Selma Burke, poet Max Eastman and composer W.C. Handy; and in a group portrait with a visiting group from the Chicago Institute for the Blind (1940). Also depicted are views of Savage's sculpture, including "Realization" (1934); a model of "The Harp" (ca. 1938); a garden sculpture modelled after musical prodigy Philippa Duke Schuyler (1937), who is also depicted with the sculpture (1938); the unfinished "After The Glory" (n.d.); "Pumbaa" (n.d.); a bust titled "Leonora" (1935); some other busts, mostly unidentified and undated; and a plaque to Rev. John W. Robinson (ca. 1943). Also included are a snapshot of three unidentified women, and two studio portraits inscribed "from spiritual daughter" Murcie (n.d.).
