DOSS, ERIKA.
Twentieth-Century American Art.
Oxford University Press, 2002.
288 pp., 151 illus. (including 91 in color). Although it includes a chapter on "Feminist art and Black art," this by no means summarizes the level of inclusion of black artists at every point throughout the text. There are many glaring omissions (John Biggers, Mildred Howard, Lois Mailou Jones, Martin Puryear, Bob Thompson, etc.) and some odd summary comments (for example, Norman Lewis's work is described as "improvisatory environments"), but it's hard to quibble with the first survey of American art to give more than token acknowledgement to the work of African American artists. Over fifty artists and 17 illustrations are included: Emma Amos, Benny Andrews, Amiri Baraka, Jean-Michel Basquiat (illus.), Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Dana Chandler, Michael Ray Charles (illus.), Barbara Chase-Riboud, Robert Colescott (illus.), Thornton Dial (illus.), Aaron Douglas, Emory Douglas, Melvin Edwards (illus.), Sam Gilliam, Coco Fusco (illus.), David Hammons (illus.), Palmer Hayden, Lonnie Holley, Cliff Joseph, Malvin Gray Johnson, Sargent Johnson (illus.), William H.

HIGGINBOTHAM, EVELYN BROOKS, et al, Eds.
The Harvard Guide to African-American History.
2001.
923 pp., visual arts bibliography of approximately 80 books in addition to the monographs mentioned in the text. Review of publications cites only four monographs from the 1940s-1971 (Rodman's Horace Pippin; Lois Mailou Jones Peintures; Images of Dignity; Mathews' Henry Ossawa Tanner) along with mention of the illustrated books by Elton Fax and John T. Biggers (on their trips to Africa), Allan Rohan Crite and Oliver Harrington. Only five additional books from the 1970s are mentioned, one of which is referred to as "that unusual publication, an artist's autobiography," but fails to note that the book is for children and that children's literature biographies of successful African American men were published in droves during the 70s, even in the form of history comic books. The author of this section states that roughly 50 monographic publications (including books and exhibition catalogues) were published during the 1990s. A highly misleading body count; we count well over 1000. Text includes mention of publications from the 1970s-90s on Charles Alston, Edward Mitchell Bannister, Romare Bearden, John Biggers, Elizabeth Catlett, Aaron Douglas, Thomas Day, Beauford Delaney, Thornton Dial, Robert S. Duncanson, Melvin Edwards, Minnie Evans, Elton Fax, Tom Feelings, Amos Ferguson, David Hammons, Oliver Harrington, Palmer Hayden, Clementine Hunter, William H. Johnson, Joshua Johnston, Lois Mailou Jones, Raymond Lark, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis, Archibald Motley, Elijah Pierce, Horace Pippin, James A. Porter, Faith Ringgold, Ellis Ruley, Philip Simmons, Renée Stout, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Alma Thomas, Bill Traylor, James W. Washington, Jr., James Lesesne Wells, and several others. A highly biased list omitting most major artists under 45.
