NEW YORK (NY). Downtown Gallery.
American Negro Art, 19th and 20th Centuries.
December 9, 1941-January 3, 1942.
Exhib. cat. The first show of African American art held at a mainstream commercial gallery, the exhibition, curated by gallery owner Edith Halpert, was sponsored by a committee of prominent white patrons including Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, Archibald MacLeish, A. Philip Randolph, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Among its aims were to raise money for the Negro Art Fund, to promote museum acquisitions of work by Black artists, and to encourage galleries to represent the living participants. In addition to providing its facilities, the Downtown Gallery donated all sales commissions to the Negro Art Fund and added Jacob Lawrence to its roster of artists at this time. Artists included: 19th century: Edward Bannister, Robert Duncanson, Edwin Harleston, William H. Simpson, Henry O. Tanner; 20th century: Charles Alston, Henry Avery, Romare Bearden, Samuel J. Brown, William S. Carter, Elizabeth Catlett, Felton Coleman, Eldzier Cortor, Cleo Crawford, Ernest Crichlow, Allan Crite, Charles Davis, Beauford Delaney, Joseph Delaney, Palmer Hayden, Malvin Gray Johnson, William H. Johnson, Ron Joseph, Paul Keene, Joseph Kersey, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis, Elba Lightfoot, Archibald Motley, Frederick Perry, Horace Pippin, Charles Sebree, George N. Victory, Charles White, Ellis Wilson, Hale Woodruff. Printmakers: Robert Blackburn, John Borican, Claude Clarke, Wilmer Jennings, Bryant Pringle, Raymond Steth, Dox Thrash, James L. Wells. Sculptors: William Artis, Richmond Barthé, Selma Burke, William Edmondson, Sargent Johnson, Martha Manning, Augusta Savage, John Henry Smith. [See copy of catalogue in National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian, vertical files.] [Listed in Magazine of Art 34 (Nov. 1941):497 with incorrect dates. Review in Art Digest, December 15, 1941, praises the show, but in exceedingly demeaning racist language: "The American Negro has at last spoken in art -- firmly and distinctively, his voice having as definite an intonation with colors as his soul has in singing and dancing. His choice of dazzling colors is just as typical as his exaggerated sense of humor, his strut and guffaw; his concern with the burdened just as characteristic as his pleading songs to his Maker."
