An Exploration & Celebration of the Art, Influence & History of the LGBTQ+ Community
Our first Pride Sale, being held in the same month as WorldPride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, will offer books, manuscripts, photographs, archives, art and objects from the last two centuries, chronicling the lives of luminaries and the history of movements, parades and protests.
Among featured artists and writers are James Baldwin, Djuna Barnes, Paul Cadmus, Jean Cocteau, Jared French, Christian Holstad, Glenn Ligon, Avel de Knight, Gertrude Stein, Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams and Walt Whitman. Highlights include original artwork for the Chelsea Boys comic strip, a Peter Hujar portrait of David Wojnarowicz, Robert Mapplethorpe’s Z Portfolio and letters from Harvey Milk.
Swann Galleries and participating consignors will be donating a portion of their commissions to benefit The Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York City.
