Resale Market – Hale Aspacio Woodruff (1900 – 1980)

Hale Woodruff was a black artist who sought to express his heritage in his abstract painting. Of his artwork he said: “I think abstraction is just another kind of reality. And although you may see a realistic subject like a glass or a table or a chair, you have to transpose or transform that into a picture, and my whole feeling is that to get the spectator involved it has to extend that vision” . . .” source: Marika Herskovic, American Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s: An Illustrated Survey, (New York School Press, 2003.)
