"... highly recommended... " —Choice

This handsomely illustrated catalog presents the work of four African American artists with shared Indiana roots—John Wesley Hardrick, William Majors, William Edouard Scott, and Hale Aspacio Woodruff. Their art, ranging from impressionism and social realism to cubism and abstract expressionism, spans the major trends in 20th-century American art, while reflecting the artists' experiences as blacks in America.
