He then studied with German artist George Grosz at the Art Students League of New York, while supporting himself as a political cartoonist for African American newspapers. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II and later studied in Paris and traveled extensively. His work became very abstract in the late 1950s and was often laden with spiritual symbolism, particularly in relation to African American life. He began to make collages in the early 1960s and was a founding member of The Spiral, an African American artistic and activist group. His work reflects the influence of Western art, African sculpture, Japanese prints and Chinese paintings. In Piano Lesson, Bearden depicts a teacher standing over a student while giving a lesson. The image was inspired by the Pittsburgh jazz pianist Mary Lou Williams and was originally featured on a poster for a dance and musical collaboration between Bearden's wife Nanette and Williams. Recalling a 1917 painting by the same name by Henri Matisse, Bearden’s image later inspired a Pulitzer prize-winning play by August Wilson in 1990. -Dominique Adams, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "", "Copyright_Type" : "Art © Romare Bearden Foundation/Licensed by VAGA, New York, NY", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/85-G-1337.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/85-G-1337.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/85-G-1337.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/85-G-1337.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2131", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 4356, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/4356", "Disp_Access_No" : "15-G-3691", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "1998", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1998", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1998", "Disp_Title" : "Daufuskie Race, The First Race Between the Turtle and the Hare", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "John Anansa Thomas Biggers", "Sort_Artist" : "Biggers, John Anansa Thomas", "Disp_Dimen" : "9 3/4 x 13 5/8 in.

His influences, including African art and Southern African American culture, are clearly visible in his art. In Daufuskie Race, The First Race Between the Turtle and the Hare, Biggers depicts a classic scene from the Aesop fable of the turtle and hare. The hare can be seen in the bottom right corner, and the turtle is in the center behind the railroad tracks.

Lange traveled around the country for the U.S. Farm Security Administration from 1935 to1939 documenting the effects of the Great Depression.

Born in Philadelphia, he earned a B.F.A. from Tempe University’s Tyler School of Art, and an M.F.A. in printmaking and drawing from the University of Washington. He worked for many years as a professor of art and printmaking at Tyler School of Art and is currently a professor emeritus. A major element in Dowell's art has been to find an abstract, visual interpretation for spirituality, poetry and music, particularly jazz. His recent work includes photographs that capture high energy, reflections and movement—from nocturnal cityscapes to rural agricultural landscapes with cotton fields. In Dream Cleansing, Dowell combines new digital technologies with traditional print making techniques to create a modern dreamscape. The Heart is symbolic of his Candomblé faith, an Afro-Brazilian religion, and his vision of a burning heart during his initiation into the religion. He states, “The heart’s spiritual overtones generate reflections on life, bringing me closer to my internal world, my humanity, my peace.” -Tricia Sackor, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by Harry White, II", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © John E.

She writes, “My art making creates harmony, balance and comfort. It is a ritual that reveres, honors and communicates with my ancestors thus creating an acute awareness of my connection to nature and sense of purpose.” Another Realm explores the artist’s relationship with her ancestry through the inclusion of African masks as well as female figures intertwined with beads that symbolically express the spirituality of contemporary African women. -Tricia Sackor, Class 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by William and Klare Scarborough", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Martina Johnson-Allen", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/15-G-3734.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/15-G-3734.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/15-G-3734.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/15-G-3734.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "5231", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 4595, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/4595", "Disp_Access_No" : "15-D-457", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "c. 1960", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1955", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1965", "Disp_Title" : "The Young Fisherman ", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Frederick Jones", "Sort_Artist" : "Jones, Frederick", "Disp_Dimen" : "16 x 22 in.

After his family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, Jones continued to develop his artistic skills under the tutelage of noted African American artist Hale Woodruff, who taught at nearby Spelman College. While he pursued training to become a professional artist, he also worked for the Coca-Cola Company to earn a living. The C.E.O. of Coca-Cola, recognizing Jones’ talent, transferred him to the Chicago plant in 1940 and sponsored his studies at the Art Institute of Chicago. From 1943 to 1946, Jones paused his artistic studies to serve in the U.S. Navy. After World War II, he resumed his work at the Coca-Cola factory as well as exhibited and sold his artwork successfully on the side. Around 1973, Jones retired early from Coca-Cola with a full pension in order to devote himself full-time to his art. <BR/><BR/>Jones’ distinctive artistic style is characterized by a Neo-Romanticism that often borders on Surrealism. Like many other African American artists of his time, he looked back to the arts of Africa for inspiration, particularly beginning in the 1950s. With The Young Fisherman, Jones combined biblical references to Mary and the Christ Child, and the symbolism of Christ as a fisherman; with the image of a black Madonna bearing mask-like features resembling Yoruba sculpture from Nigeria, suggestive of a Pan-African aesthetic.<BR/></SPAN></SPAN>", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © the artist or artist's estate", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "DRAWINGS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/15-D-457.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/15-D-457.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/15-D-457.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/15-D-457.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "3476", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 79, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/79", "Disp_Access_No" : "01-P-474(1-3)", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "1953", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1953", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1953", "Disp_Title" : "Haitian Voodoo Spirits", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Paul F., Jr. Keene", "Sort_Artist" : "Keene, Paul F., Jr.", "Disp_Dimen" : "69 1/4 x 80 in.

Keene’s artworks were inspired by his personal experiences at home and abroad. He was particularly captivated by the religions and musical traditions he encountered in his travels. In this artwork Keene highlights on the themes of religion and music through the incorporation of Haitian Voodoo subjects and ritualistic symbols. Several haloed musicians engage in drumming practices often associated with Haitian rituals and ceremonies. The middle panel features two symbols of Haitian Voodoo gods, Damballah and Ayida.

Born in Atlantic City, NJ, he grew up in the Philadelphia area then moved to New York City as a teenager. He dropped out of high school at age 16 but took classes at the Harlem Art Workshop with Charles Alston. In 1941, when he was 23 years old, he completed his best known works, the Migration Series, a sequence of 60 paintings about the Great Migration of American Americans from rural South to the urban North, which were purchased by the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. Many of Lawrence’s artworks illustrate stories from African American history, as well as scenes from contemporary black culture. In the late 1940s, he began to explore the theme of Builders, which became the focus of another well-known series. He wrote, "The Builders came from my own observations of the human condition. If you look at a work closely, you see that it incorporates things other than the builders, like a street scene, or a family." With Builders No. 3, Lawrence depicts three male carpenters handling various construction tools. He employs a dynamic Modernist style, with flat planes of bold colors, formal rhythms, and an up-tilted picture plane. Beyond the workmen, the presence of pedestrians indicates the urban setting and suggests the vibrancy of city life. ", "Dedication" : "Gift of Edward I.

The model for Mary was newlywed Tanner’s Swedish-American wife. Tanner studied with Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in the 1880s before traveling to and eventually settling in Paris, where, from 1894 on, his work appeared in the annual, juried Salon. <SPAN STYLE="font-style:italic">Mary</SPAN> is in its original tabernacle frame with its Salon entry number, 1252, and another label noting Tanner’s previous Salon medal for an earlier painting.

In 1924, she began a 35 year career teaching art at a D.C. junior high school. Teaching allowed her to support herself while pursuing her own painting part-time. Thomas became an important role model for women, African Americans, and other artists. She was the first African American woman to have a solo exhibition at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art in 1972, and she exhibited her paintings at the White House three times. In Female Nude Standing, Thomas presents a painterly sketch of a nude woman using white colors surrounded by vibrant patches of reds and oranges. Thomas’ early artworks were representational, though her Howard University professors challenged her to experiment with abstraction. Female Nude Standing was created when Thomas had just begun to experiment with abstraction. It was not until she retired from teaching in 1960 and was able to concentrate on her artistic career full-time, that she finally developed her signature abstract style. -Dominique Adams, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Gift of Joseph N.

Thrash was an autodidact who studied by correspondence while living on the road as a teenager before attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

He traveled to West Africa in the 1970s, at a time when many African American artists were exploring their ancestral African roots. His artwork reflected not only the changing social times but also his evolving vision as an individual who came to embrace universal cross-cultural connections. He created paintings and sculptures that responded to African, Japanese, and Indian cultural traditions, and that often included abstract references to music as well as dance. Many of his abstract works seem to have a life of their own, evoking visual associations with human and animal forms. In this ink wash rendering for a sculpture, he presents a ladder-like form which rests against the wall, but also seems to be emerging from it, creatively playing with notions of space and animation. <BR/></SPAN></SPAN>", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Searles Spicer Estate", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "DRAWINGS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/13-D-444.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/13-D-444.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/13-D-444.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/13-D-444.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "1343", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 994, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/994", "Disp_Access_No" : "13-SC-72", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2004", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2004", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2004", "Disp_Title" : "Hopscotch", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Charles Robert Searles", "Sort_Artist" : "Searles, Charles Robert", "Disp_Dimen" : "33 1/4 x 15 3/4 x 6 1/2 in.

He ingeniously transforms steam irons, ironing boards, hairdryers, and high-heeled shoes into powerful sculptures, installations, and works on paper. Mining his own African American heritage, Cole creates work that celebrates African culture and confronts viewers with the painful history of slavery in America. In Pressed Iron Blossom No. 1, Cole portrays a beautiful blossoming flower with petals of various shades of black and gray. The artist created the patterned design by pressing steam irons onto the surface of the print matrix. For Cole, steam irons evoke references not only to household goods, but also to African masks, and to the slave ships of the Middle Passage. -Dominique Adams, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Willie Cole", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/06-G-3323.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/06-G-3323.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/06-G-3323.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/06-G-3323.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2119", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 5096, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/5096", "Disp_Access_No" : "15-G-3736", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2012", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2012", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2012", "Disp_Title" : "Compton Nocturne", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Alison Saar", "Sort_Artist" : "Saar, Alison", "Disp_Dimen" : "19 1/4 x 25 1/4 in.

In this print, she explores the theme of Sankofa—a West African word from Ghana that means “learning from the past” which is often represented through visual symbols and linked with proverbs in Akan and Asante art. Here the artist uses visual layering techniques to allude to the past, present, and future happening simultaneously, overlaid with various Asante “Adinkra” symbols. The central image of an African American girl holding a black doll derives from an early 20th century photograph which she found in an abandoned house. The layering effect, created through a sequence of 19 silkscreens, suggests parallel universes, with the image of the young girl slipping in between realities. The work also contains other kinds of symbolism: the color indigo alludes to the Middle Passage; the color red connotes life or blood; and the tree suggests life, death, rebirth, and family. -Tricia Sackor, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by Thomas Blum", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Bernice Appelin-Williams", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/14-G-3622.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/14-G-3622.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/14-G-3622.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/14-G-3622.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2884", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 8080, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/8080", "Disp_Access_No" : "16-G-4980", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "1982", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1982", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1982", "Disp_Title" : "Making Plans", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "John Thomas Riddle, Jr.", "Sort_Artist" : "Riddle, John Thomas, Jr.", "Disp_Dimen" : "22 x 31 3/16 in.

He served as a Tuskegee Airman in World War II, and then lived several years in Paris and in Haiti before returning to teach at Philadelphia College of Art and Bucks County Community College. Keene’s artworks were inspired by his personal experiences at home and abroad. His works explore cultural ideas, including Haitian voodoo practices, urban American street scenes, and contemporary jazz music. This print, Solomon’s Bride, portrays a woman at a window, or possibly a portrait painting, framed within a circle upon a colorful striped wall. As in many of Keene’s images, the figure’s head is haloed, evoking references to religious icons and deified heroes. The image reflects Keene’s lifelong interest in biblical and spiritual themes and is related to other images from the 1980s, such as his Myths and Legends series. -Tricia Sackor, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "© La Salle University Art Museum/ artist's estate", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "United States", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/17-G-4993.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/17-G-4993.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/17-G-4993.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/17-G-4993.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "9391", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 8116, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/8116", "Disp_Access_No" : "17-G-4994", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "1980", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1980", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1980", "Disp_Title" : "The Myth Maker", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Paul F., Jr. Keene", "Sort_Artist" : "Keene, Paul F., Jr.", "Disp_Dimen" : "30 x 22 in.

Edmonds studied at the Philadelphia Museum College of Art (now University of the Arts). He became an art instructor in the Philadelphia and Wilmington public schools, and he later became a consultant and instructor at the Brandywine Workshop. Edmonds was also involved with the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia, which has historically been a strong supporter of social justice and civil rights. From 1973 to 1976, he collaborated with fellow painter Richard Watson in creating bold and riveting murals for the Church of the Advocate. Many of Edmonds’ paintings were inspired by African American experience, spirituality, biblical passages, and jazz. With Untitled (Woman with Flowers), Edmonds juxtaposes the austere and furrowed face of an elderly woman with a riotous and vibrant display of flowers that embraces her body in their overflowing extravagance. -Tricia Sackor, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with the Benjamin D.

He was intrigued by the way that Africans dressed. They did not pair solid pants with a patterned blouse as we would in Western culture, but instead mixed patterns to create completely unique combinations. By setting patterns next to each other in his paintings and sculptures, Searles incorporated these African influences. Searles often listened to jazz as he worked, and music was an integral part of his life. In the 1970s, he played percussion with the Afro-American Dance Ensemble at the Ile Ife Cultural Center in Germantown. His dancer paintings were inspired by the Ile Ife dancers, with colorful visual repetitions evoking the rhythms of percussion.
