A double-sided work by the late Outsider artist, Bill Traylor. Above is Man on White, Woman on Red, and below is Man with Black Dog. The unusual piece could set a new world auction record for the artist in January 2020.

See my piece in Art & Object on an unusually large double-sided work by Bill Traylor that might set a new world auction record for the late Outsider artist. Christie’s will offer it on January 17 in New York with an estimate of $200,000 to $400,000.

Director Steven Spielberg gave it to Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple, after he completed a film based on the book.

Art & Object is on Twitter and Instagram.
