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. Six essays document the lives of the four artists and examine the artistic, social, historical, and cultural dimensions of their works. Reproductions of a generous selection of historical paintings, landscapes, portraits, murals, and graphic works - many published here for the first time - offer a unique opportunity to follow the careers of four extraordinary American artists.
