About the Florida Highwaymen Art Movement:

It’s the mid 1950’s and Albert Backus, a prominent Florida artist, takes an unknown African-American, Alfred Hair under his wing to teach a unique style of painting in bright vivid colors, a style which would come to define Florida landscape art the next half century.

Hair went on to recruit 25 friends, teaching them as Backus had taught him. This group of 26 African Americans were able to establish themselves against many odds, including racial and cultural barriers of the time - forming the group which came to be known as “The Florida Highwaymen”. A name derived selling their paintings up and down the Highways and door-to-door of businesses.

Although, Hair died tragically in 1970, The Highwaymen art movement he created lives on to this day. In fact, all 26 of the Original Highwaymen are listed artists and in 2004 were inducted in to the Florida Artist Hall of Fame. Today, Highwaymen art may be found hanging in many places, including private collections, museums, exhibits and Florida’s Capital. The Highwaymen are considered “The Last Great American Art Movement of the 20th Century”.

Antique Chinese Seals & Carved Stones Remain Popular Among Collectors

Share |

Chinese Tianhuang Stone Dragon SealManor Auctions will sell a nice collection of Chinese seals, carved stone and boulders in the October 9th Fine Collectibles Auction. With the value of many collectibles feeling the bite from the current economic downturn, demand for quality Chinese antiques, such as seals, jade, jewelry, ivory, statuary, textiles and carvings has remained very strong. Much of this demand is fueled by growth of the Chinese economy over the past 10 years and the associated wealth created. In some cases, Chinese collectors are driving values to record highs.

 About Chinese Seals - in Relation to the Chinese Culture:

Chinese seals have been an integral part of Chinese culture for the past 3000 years. They were used in official and private capacities. According to a Han dynasty story, the first seal was given to the Yellow Emperor by a yellow dragon with a chart on its back. Another story says that it was given to Emperor Yao by a phoenix as the emperor was sitting in a boat. In any case, the receipt of the seal signifies the conferral of the Mandate of Heaven. He who has the seal possesses the Mandate of Heaven, in other words, he has been given the right to rule the empire. So when Tang, the first ruler of the Shang dynasty overthrows the last tyrant of the previous Xia dynasty, he seizes the royal seal and thus establishes his power.

Seals - Official Capacity:

At the time of the Han dynasty, the emperor had six seals, during the Tang he had eight, during the Ming over a dozen, and by the time of the Qing, there were several dozens of official imperial seals. The inscription on these official seals usually refers to receiving the Mandate of Heaven or being the successor of Heaven.

 Official seals have been conferred to officials as a token of their office and authority. These seals were usually small enough to be carried on the official's belt. There were regulations as to the material and shape of the handle of these seals: some had to be golden, some copper, some with a handle in the shape of a turtle, some of a camel. Up to the Eastern Han dynasty (25-330), the color of ink used to affix official seals was regulated depending on the position of the owner, some officials had to use green ink, some purple, some yellow etc.


Seals - Private Capacity:

Private seals are naturally unregulated, therefore they show the largest variety in content, shape, size, material and calligraphy. Despite of chinese carved stone bouldertheir varied characteristics, they can still be categorized based on their use.

Seals with names, pen names, pseudonyms etc on them were used as a signature by people in their private life. This is how artists sign their works and letters. Chinese literati commonly used a number of different pen names so identifying a person's name from a seal can be a tricky business.

Collector seals were mainly used for the purpose of authenticating pieces of art. Thus a seal of a famous collector or connoisseur would become an integral part of a work of art and could substantially raise its value. Thus in the course of several centuries, some Chinese paintings became covered by a dozen of different seals.

There were also various "leisure seals", which possessed thoughts or famous quotes.
