Purvis Young lived and worked in Overtown when it was still a squalid #Miami neighborhood. He was obsessed with books and hungry for knowledge about art, making up for a lack of formal education with intensive reading and study. Young was also an outspoken activist on social and racial issues who painted on scavenged scrap lumber, plywood and on the exterior walls of abandoned buildings in his neighborhood.

The Philadelphia Wireman sculptures - some 1200 in all - were found abandoned in an alley off #Philadelphia , PA's South Street on trash night in the late 1970s and sold to Philadelphia gallerist John Ollman. No one has yet stepped forward to claim ownership or knowledge of the artist. Ollman has said that people who came into the gallery during the first exhibition in 1985 were appalled by the work. Since then this work has come to be regarded as an important discovery in the field of self-taught art, variously compared to Native American medicine bundles, African-American memory jugs, and African fetish objects.

Though he created modern artwork, artist Frank Faulkner was heavily influenced by traditional decorative arts and architecture. He would buy old homes and restore them in the Remix fashion - combining old and new – and he was celebrated equally for his interior designs and his original art. These acrylic on wood works by Frank Faulkner - lots 274 and 275 – perfectly epitomize Rago’s Remix concept.

This bronze horse drinking fountain was made by sculptor William Couper and commissioned by the successful, albeit eccentric, businessman, Howard Willet in 1901 for his farm in White Plains, NY. Gedney Farm has a fascinating history. Willet built it as a model gentleman's farm which became known for breeding #thoroughbred horses, prized cocker spaniels and dairy cows. He was instrumental in founding the Westchester Kennel Club and served as president of the American Kennel Club.
