Description:
Ernie Barnes, Jr., (American, 1938-2009), The Graduate, 1972, oil/canvas, signed, 14" x 18", Provenance: Gwen Gordy (Fuqua) of Motown fame bought the painting directly from the artist. Gwen Gordy Fuqua (1927-1999) was a legendary businesswoman, songwriter and composer, and the sister of Berry Gordy. She wrote hit songs, like "Lonely Teardrops", "All I Could Do Was Cry", and "Distant Lover". She was a highly successful manger and record producer. The Graduate hung in her mansion in Beverly Hills, CA Exhibitions: The Beauty of the Ghetto, various venues. Barnes created this exhibit, which included 35 paintings, and lasted from 1972-1979, hosted by celebrities, athletes, and dignitaries Catalogue Note: This work is housed in its original distressed wood frame. Barnes visited his parents in 1966, shortly before his first solo exhibition. His father had recently had a stroke and the usually well-maintained yard of his parents had fallen into disrepair. After inspecting the well-worn picket fence, he placed one of his recent works against it, and realized how much he liked the contrast of the old and new. He used the wood from the fence as frame molding for his New York show. Barnes commented, "In tribute...Daddy's fence would hug all my paintings..That would have made him smile."

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
ERNIE BARNES (1938 - 2009) O.J. Simpson. Oil on canvas, 1969. 914x610 mm; 36x24 inches. Signed in oil, lower right. Provenance: commissioned by Edward Hookstratten, Los Angeles, given to Coach John McKay, Los Angeles; thence by descent to the current owner. Edward Hookstratten, a Los Angeles-based sports attorney and agent in 1969, gave this painting to O.J. Simpson's coach at the University of Southern California the year after Simpson won the Heisman Trophy. This painting hung in Coach McKay's office at Heritage Hall at USC until he left to become the head coach of the Tampa Bay Bucaneers in 1976. This fascinating, powerful painting by Ernie Barnes of a young O.J. Simpson shows the artist's expressive portraiture and closeness to the game of football. Barnes had retired from the NFL as a player himself only four years earlier. Barnes depicts Simpson as muscular and lean, with a scowl--an imposing, almost defiant, figure with the fiery colors of cardinal and yellow both in his uniform and the sky. Sports continued to be an important part of Barnes's work. In 1984, he was named an official artist of the Olympic Games in Los Angeles. And in 2004, Barnes was named America's Best Painter of Sports by the American Sport Art Museum & Archives. Estimate $35,000-50,000
