Original illustration: Raised Fist.

(Holden, Herbert) (illus.)

1971. An original illustration capturing a moment of protest by the black community, showing a young Black man raising his fist in a timeless and insistent gesture of power and belief. Jarring in its continued relevancy, the illustration is finely executed in mixed media, including tempera, watercolor, conté crayon, pen, and ink over graphite on board. Signed "Holden" and dated with "AMR" as copyright. "AMR" refers to Applied Management Research, who commissioned the illustration, perhaps for marketing purposes. At the verso is the title "Symbolic Gestures." Chips to edges of boards, and corners somewhat rubbed. Near fine. Framed. (20 by 24 in.). Item #30130
