A Century of African American Art
University Museum, University of Delaware | 2004 | ISBN: 0813534569, 0813534577 | English | 284 pages | PDF | 42 MB

Lavishly illustrated with over one hundred color photographs, this book provides an important resource for the study of the works included in the Jones collection, the artists who created them, as well as the social and historical contexts that engendered them. The volume brings together ten essays, which examine four issues in American art: portraiture and realism in relation to abstract expressionism, the implications of color, the role of narrative, and the concept of multiple originals. Each essay makes the intentional effort to de-race African American art-not to strip the work of its idiomatic cultural footing, but rather to situate it within the larger picture of the nation's history and cultural traditions.
