Carolyn and Walter Foxworth have been an important part of the arts in Dallas for over 50 years. While they collected as a couple, they both had passions that drove the collection. Carolyn's eye for quality served her well both as the Christies representative in Dallas and as a collector of 20th century painting and sculpture, Pre-Columbian art, and African art. Walter's primary interest were in his kachina collection and his book collection of science fiction, mystery, and notably - The Wizard of Oz. The Foxworths were active in the Dallas Museum of Art and generously lent works from their collection to numerous exhibitions. Carolyn and Walter have found memories of traveling all over the world working with dealers and buying at auction to build their collection. Now as they down size, they look forward to sharing their objects with other collectors.Included in this sale are some fine objects that reflect the breadth of the Foxworth's collection. A very fine and delicate Pre-Columbian Jaina figure can be found in lot 3450463. From the Maprik area of Papua New Guinea two Abelam basketry objects (3450465) dating to the first half of the 20th century are in excellent condition and of great quality. The city of Paquime was the center of the Casas Grandes culture (1130 - 1450 CE) in the state of Chihuahua just west of El Paso. Shamans were an important part of this culture and were occasionally represented in the ceramics (see lot 3450493). Shango is the god of thunder and lightning among the Yoruba of Nigeria, West Africa. Shango staffs, figures and doors are sought after by collectors of African. Lot 3450497 has a fine early Yoruba door that quite possibly was on the residence of a Shango priest. Great reference books are important to any collector or researcher, but unfortunately. they usually are quite expensive. There are some treasures in this group of books that will sell well under the market.About John Buxton and ArtTrak: John Buxton has been in the antiques and appraisal business for more than 35 years.
