Jasper52 presents Americana, folk and outsider art, Aug. 5

Many spectacular objects and items go unsigned or unmarked by their makers. Too often, these artisans didn’t regard their masterpieces as art; they saw them as a hobby, or an amusement, or something that helped pass the time. We may not always know who made a given piece, but we do recognize its beauty and its craftsmanship.

On August 5, starting at 6 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will stage an auction of Americana, Folk Art, and Outsider Art. As always, the sale is curated by Clifford Wallach, an expert in tramp art, folk art, and Americana.

19th-century buckskin vest, est. $3,000-$5,000
