Signed l/r: Kappes 1887

Alfred Kappes was one of America’s most engaging genre painters of the later part of the 19th century, a time in American of great economic disparity. His paintings of the African American community lacked the “cleanliness” and sentimentality of his contemporaries and instead were frank, down to earth and sensitive. During his lifetime Kappes exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Association, Boston Art Club, Salmagundi Club, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago. He also had works in the 1983 Columbian Exhibition.
The work of Kappes was included in an exhibit in 2011 at the Huntington Library and Art Collection, San Marino, California, entitled Taxing Visions that focused on underside of the Golden Age and the dignity maintained by many during difficult economic times.
