Souls Grown Deep Vol. 1: African American Vernacular Art, Volume 25
William Arnett, William S. Arnett
Tinwood Books, Nov 22, 2000 - Folk art - 544 pages
The first comprehensive overview of an important genre of American art, Souls Grown Deep explores the visual-arts genius of the black South. This first work in a multivolume study introduces 40 African-American self-taught artists, who, without significant formal training, often employ the most unpretentious and unlikely materials. Like blues and jazz artists, they create powerful statements amplifying the call for freedom and vision.
