Format: Paperback
I bought this book at a museum exhibit which featured African-American art from 1800 to 1950. The book starts with Joshua Johnston, a portrait painter, and proceeds to Robert Duncanson and Edward Bannister, who painted landscapes. It isn't until the 1890s that Black artists who painted Black subjects are introduced, with Henry Tanner's "The Thankful Poor," 1894. After that the book practically explodes with strong paintings by Aaron Douglas, Archibald Motley, Jr., and Horace Pippin, progressing through William Johnson and Romare Bearden, culminating in Jacob Lawrence. A wonderful collection which not only reproduces paintings by African-Americans, but illustrates social struggle and social progress as well.
