"Kehinde Wiley's portraits of men of color, portrayed as kings, knights, or saints out of Western history paintings, juxtapose issues of race and gender with ideas of power, and ask important questions about the role of young black males today. Kehinde Wiley...is a great introduction to the celebrated portrait painter. It's a perfect coffee table book, with great content." The Artblog
"This is the first monograph on Wiley, complete with gilt-edged pages and essays by art historians, and it's the kind of art you wind up talking about as much as you look at it...fascinating." Star Ledger
