Title

Charleston Gossips

Description

Alfred Hutty completed very few oil paintings relative to the prodigious number of his etchings and watercolors. In the latter media, however, Hutty’s works on paper often revisit the same subjects and compositions. Charleston Gossips presents one of the artist’s favorite subjects, groups of African American women socializing amid their work in the fields and market streets. The Florence County Museum’s Wright Collection of Southern Art also contains a print from the edition of drypoint etchings of this composition, as well as the artist’s original nickeled copper etching plate, from which the print was produced.
