    An impressive group of bronze sculpture included Richmond Barthé’s Stevedore, 1937, and Elizabeth Catlett’s Glory. Roy DeCarava’s Dancers, 1956, and a quadriptych by Carrie Mae Weems from her Sea Island Series, 1992, led a section of scarce photographs. Early twentieth-century highlights were also available: Flight into Egypt by Henry Ossawa Tanner, circa 1922-25, is a scarce, large example of the artist's late-career time in Paris–a subject that was central to his oeuvre.
