Details:Throughout the twentieth century, Black artists in the United States produced powerful works of art that described and expressed the joys, anxieties, social changes, economic upheavals, global conflagrations, and aesthetic concerns of the times during which they lived. Through more than fifty paintings, sculptures, and works on paper, Black Artists in America: From the Great Depression to Civil Rights explores the various ways in which African American artists responded to the political, social, and economic climates of the United States from the 1930s into the 1950s. Black Artists in America begins with the collapse of the stock market in 1929 and the subsequent devastation of the American (and much of the world’s) economy. The Great Depression interrupted one of the most powerful aesthetic flowerings this country has ever produced, the Harlem Renaissance, and thrust many artists into poverty and hardship. During this time, however, Black artists including Charles White and Hale Woodruff were an integral part of a new aesthetic development known as Social Realism, which rejected early modernism in favor of realistic imagery focused on issues important to the working class.
