ART BOOK of POSTCARDS
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, Archibold Motley Jr. and others who aren't
but should be.
Working in diverse styles, techniques, and media,
some black artists create memorable images laced with
social commentary, cultural affirmation, myth and
history, and simple love for people in all their beauty,
folly, and nobility. Others have discarded the constraints
of representational imagery for an abstract language
that challenges viewers to consider the familiar and
the unknown from new perspectives.
