New Edmonia Lewis Auction Record Set

Edmonia Lewis's 1874 sculpture, The Marriage of Hiawatha, (lot 32) went for $314,500 at Sotheby's May 21 American Paintings, Drawings & Sculpture auction. My catalogue essay is online with some fine pictures. The published catalogue actually features the sculpture and the essay with a gorgeous colorful layout.
