. Collector Walter O. Evans Aims to Preserve the Legacy of African American Artists « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NEWS – Walter O. Evans calls his penchant for collecting hundreds of artworks, almost expectedly, “an addictive process,” which began somewhat unintentionally in the late 1970s. Though it’s by no means encyclopedic, his impressive holdings stretch as far back to the mid-19th century, with a cornerstone of the collection, the 1848 painting Man Fishing by Robert S. Duncanson, a free Black artist. Because Evans only first learned about the history of African American art as an adult, his commitment to sharing his collection with the world has the lofty ambition of helping to spread awareness to these often-overlooked artists.
