Synopsis: A portrait of the life and work of this African-American painter examines the self-taught folk artist's life, from his childhood, to his struggle to teach himself to paint, to his current acclaim as one of America's foremost artists.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-7-The lives and work of two African-American artists are briefly explored in these heavily illustrated books. Horace Pippin, a painter, was born in Pennsylvania in 1888. Despite a career-threatening wound suffered during World War I, he continued to create and ultimately received some recognition during his lifetime for his distinctive, bold, folk-art style paintings and burnt-wood panels. Harriet Powers, a quilter, was born a slave in Georgia in 1837. Though nothing is known of her early life, census records, slave narratives, archival photographs, and the writings of Jennie Smith (a white art teacher who purchased Powers's Bible story quilt) are drawn on for background information. Both titles provide appropriate, well-labeled, full-color, often full-page reproductions of the artists' works, as well as related illustrative material. A sampling of the sources consulted are noted, but not specifically cited. Altogether, these books provide readable, concise introductions to two African-American artists and to some of the historical influences on their work.
