Over the past two centuries, black American artists have consistently produced outstanding work in a wide variety of styles and media and in scales that range from the intimate to the monumental. The twelve paintings and collages featured in this calendar--by African American artists Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Eldzier Cortor, Beauford Delaney, Jacob Lawrence, Hughie Lee-Smith, Norman Lewis, Betye Saar, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Alma Thomas, Bob Thompson, and Charles White--draw inspiration from jazz, blues, children's games, biblical stories, European masterworks, African art and culture, and the intersection of personal and public history. Together, they offer but a sampling of the contribution African American artists have made to the global history of art.
