Aaron Douglas : art, race, and the Harlem Renaissance by Amy Helene Kirschke( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 891 libraries worldwide
Aaron Douglas (1899-1979) is the leading visual artist of the Harlem Renaissance, the first African-American to explore modernism and to reflect African art in his paintings, murals, and illustrations. For Douglas, the movement was a special expression of African-Americanism that should be screened from the influence of white culture. Even though white patrons gave generous support, Douglas regarded the Harlem Renaissance as a rare and exceptional black movement and struggled to maintain its clear identity. This exploration of Douglas's life and career is filled with reproductions of his art. From previously unavailable source materials, including letters to his wife, Amy Kirschke traces the struggle of this fascinating artist to advance the Harlem Renaissance and to establish its particular imprint

Aaron Douglas : African American modernist by Aaron Douglas( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
"In paintings, murals, and book illustrations, Aaron Douglas (1899-1979) produced the most powerful visual legacy of the Harlem Renaissance, prompting the philosopher and writer Alain Locke to dub him the "father of Black American art." Douglas's role, as well as that of the Harlem Renaissance in general, in the evolution of American modernism deserves close scholarly attention - attention it finally receives in this illustrated book on his life and work. Its authors argue that Douglas's work opened doors for African American artists in Harlem and beyond, and that it invited a dialogue with modernism that put African American life, labor, and freedom, along with African traditions and motifs, at its center. New information emerges from these pages, reflecting the rich interchange between the visual arts, music, dance, literature, and politics that shaped Douglas's work and also defined the Harlem Renaissance."--Jacket
