Black Art: Treasures from the Schomburg
Artists of the African Diaspora have made monumental contributions to the world of art, producing an influential body of work informed by the black experience. This book of thirty postcards celebrates the work of artists from Ethiopia, Dahomey (Benin), and Haiti, their names now sadly lost, as well as some Americans who are known worldwide – Hale Woodruff, Augusta Savage, Charles Alston, Archibald Motley Jr. – and others who aren’t but should be.
The works reproduced here are all from the collections of the Library’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
