Treasures from the Schomburg.
Artists of the African Diaspora have made monumental contributions to the world of art, producing an influential body of work informed 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, Archibald Motley Jr. - and others who aren't but should be.
Working in diverse stuyles, 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.
The superb works here are from the extraordinary collection of New York's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
The Black Art Poscard Book contains 30 high quality reproductions of paintings, bound together in a single handy volume. Each postcard removes easily for individual use and mailing.
