Mahalia Jackson Signed 5×6 Cut W/ 16×20 Teenie Harris Photo – COA JSA

Women in Praise “He Is Risen” Teenie Harris 16×20 Photo (Original Print From Teenie Harris Estate – From the Pittsburgh Courier Archives)

Charles “Teenie” Harris was a trailblazer in professional photography. The African American artist’s atelier was in Pittsburgh where he operated an independent studio, but he plied most of his career in the service of the Pittsburgh Courier, the leading black Steel City newspaper of the time. It was a chronicle of a vibrant urban community during the Jim Crow and Civil Rights eras. In his images, he captured the city’s urban flavor in everyday experiences as well as people who shaped the 20th century – stars like Lena Horne, Jackie Robinson, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. Currently, the Carnegie Museum of Art is entrusted with many of his negatives archives.  With permission from his estate many of these iconic images are now available and are presented for enjoyment.

Presented is a photo that celebrates faith coming from the multi-cultural, urban community. Harris represented it well and even had artwork inspired by this photo “He is Risen” was the title. This gorgeous 16×20 black and white image by Teenie captures the essence of the women in celebration. Stamped on the back as a genuine Teenie photo with permission from the Pittsburgh Courier Archives.

The signature on the cut is in blue steel tip fountain pen and grades 9/10. Personalized and inscribed “To Roy, Sincerely yours”. There is a signature on back (unidentified).
