Original protest art: Black Man Arrested.

(Holden, Herbert) (illus.)

1972. An original illustration capturing a moment of protest by the black community, showing a black man being dragged away by an armed police officer, with the expressions of other protestors in the background. 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. Chips to edges of boards, and corners somewhat rubbed. Near fine. Framed. (20 by 24 in.). Item #30498
