Leslie Hindman Auctioneers' inaugural auction featuring Works by African American artists was completely sold out, making it a "white glove" sale.

Aggressive phone and internet bidding brought strong prices overall for the March 1 sale in Chicago.

Among the highlights were historic paintings such as Robert Scott Duncanson's The Appenines, Italy, which realized $26,840, and Hughie Lee Smith's The Acropolis which brought $23,180.

Contemporary works also fared well. Notably, Alma Thomas' Abstract Composition commanded $21,960.

An artist record was set for Charles McGee whose Ring around the Rosy fetched $18,300, from an estimate of $1,500-2,500.

Another Works by African American Artists sale is being organized by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers for Sept. 20, 2012.
