The Harlem Renaissance and Transatlantic Modernism: A Creative Convening


Recommended Posts

I went Sunday. A major show. Telling how many of the artists I had not known. William H. Johnson (I did know) makes a huge impact in this context.

I had noticed how many pictures were on loan from Howard University. When I was in a room dedicated to Aaron Douglas’s fine myth-scale paintings I knew I had seen them before. But where? Looking close I saw that a bunch of them were owned by Fisk University in Nashville and of course I saw that work in Cravath Hall with my daughter some years ago.

I don’t want to be a spoiler so at the end of the show you walk into a room featuring one work by an artist who really can’t be pulled into a Harlem Renaissance categorization (chronologically) but it is not a disappointment.
