Abstract:

Horace Pippin (1888-1946) taught himself to paint in the 1930s and quickly earned international renown for depictions of World War I, black families, and American heroes Abraham Lincoln, abolitionist John Brown, and singer Marian Anderson, among other subjects. This volume sheds new light on how the disabled combat veteran claimed his place in the contemporary art world. Organized around topics of autobiography, black labor, artistic process, and gift exchange, it reveals the range of references and critiques encoded in his work and the racial, class, and cultural dynamics that informed his meteoric career. Featuring over 60 of Pippin's paintings, this volume also includes two previously unknown artist's statements--"The Story of Horace Pippin as told by Himself" and "How I Paint"--And an exhibition history and list of artworks drawn from new research

Horace Pippin (1888-1946) a appris à peindre dans les années 1930 et a rapidement acquis une renommée internationale pour ses représentations de la Première Guerre mondiale, de familles noires et de héros américains comme Abraham Lincoln, l'abolitionniste John Brown ou la chanteuse Marian Anderson, entre autres sujets. Ce volume jette un nouvel éclairage sur la façon dont le vétéran de guerre handicapé a revendiqué sa place dans le monde de l'art contemporain. Organisé autour de thèmes tels que l'autobiographie, le travail au noir, le processus artistique et l'échange de cadeaux, il révèle une série de références et de critiques includes dans son travail et les dynamiques raciales, de classe et culturelles qui ont influencé sa carrière fulgurante. Présentant plus de 60 peintures de Pippin, ce volume comprend également deux textes de l'artiste jusqu'alors inconnues : "L'histoire d'Horace Pippin racontée par lui-même" et "Comment je peins"--Ainsi qu'une histoire des expositions de son oeuvre et une liste d'œuvres issues de nouvelles recherches
