Charles White : a retrospective( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a revelatory reassessment of one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century: Charles White (1918-1979) is best known for bold, large-scale paintings and drawings of African Americans, meticulously executed works that depict human relationships and socioeconomic struggles with a remarkable sensitivity. This comprehensive study offers a much-needed reexamination of the artist's career and legacy. With handsome reproductions of White's finest paintings, drawings, and prints, the volume introduces his work to contemporary audiences, reclaims his place in the art-historical narrative, and stresses the continuing relevance of his insistent dedication to producing positive social change through art. Tracing White's career from his emergence in Chicago to his mature practice as an artist, activist, and educator in New York and Los Angeles, leading experts provide insights into White's creative process, his work as a photographer, his political activism and interest in history, the relationship between his art and his teaching, and the importance of feminism in his work. A preface by Kerry James Marshall addresses White's significance as a mentor to an entire generation of practitioners and underlines the importance of this largely overlooked artist"--

Painter Kerry James Marshall was born on October 17, 1955 in Birmingham, Alabama. He realized he wanted to be an artist at an early age. When Marshall was eight, his family moved to the Watts community in Los Angeles. As the epicenter of intense struggle for civil rights, Watts and its imagery dramatically influenced the form and content of Marshall's work. His celebrated series, "The Garden Project", critiqued low-income housing projects whose names denoted an idyllic, Eden-like world. Marshall received his training from Charles White while enrolled at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. Best known for his stylized, large-scale paintings depicting the beauty and complexity of African American life, Marshall also designs sculpture and served as a production designer for films. He was named the recipient of the prestigious MacArthur "Genius" Grant and his work was incorporated into the permanent collections of many museums across the nation

Kerry James Marshall : mastry by Kerry James Marshall( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This long-awaited volume celebrates the work of Kerry James Marshall, one of America's greatest living painters. Born before the passage of the Civil Rights Act, in Birmingham, Alabama, and witness to the Watts riots in 1965, Marshall has long been an inspired and imaginative chronicler of the African American experience. Best known for large-scale interiors, landscapes, and portraits featuring powerful black figures, Marshall explores narratives of African American history from slave ships to the present and draws upon his deep knowledge of art history from the Renaissance to twentieth-century abstraction, as well as other sources such as the comic book and the muralist tradition. With luscious color and brushstrokes and highly detailed patterning, his direct and intimate scenes of black middle-class life conjure a wide range of emotions, resulting in powerful paintings that confront the position of African Americans throughout American history.0Richly illustrated, this monumental book features essays by noted curators as well as the artist, and more than 100 paintings from throughout the artist's career arranged thematically by subject: history painting; beauty, as expressed through the nude, portraiture, and self-portraiture; landscape; religion; and the politics of black nationalism. 0Exhibition: Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, USA (23.04-09.09.2016) / Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA (09.2016-01.2017) / Museum of Contemporary, Los Angeles, USA (spring 2017)
