Foreword by John Davis Hatch, Jr.; essay "Up Till Now" by Alain Locke who states that the show is both "a representative and challenging cross-section of contemporary American art and, additionally, convincing evidence of the Negro’s maturing racial and cultural self-expression in painting and sculpture."

Bannister, Richmond Barthé, Romare Bearden, Eloise Bishop, Selma Burke, William S.

ALTSCHULER, BRUCE, ed.
Collecting the New: Museums and Contemporary Art.
Princeton University Press, 2005.
208 pp., illus. Unfortunately discussion of a museum collecting African or African American art is ghettoized in two essays about specialized museum collections (as if no other museum professional would consider such a purchase.) Passing mention of 70+ African American artists (only 14 women), most in the essay by Lowery Stokes Sims (Director, Studio Museum in Harlem) "Collecting the Art of African Americans at the Studio Museum in Harlem: Positioning the 'New' from the Perspective of the Past." The African artists are primarily clustered in the text by Pamela McClusky (Curator of African and Oceanic Art, Seattle Art Museum) "The Unconscious Museum: Collecting Contemporary African Art without Knowing It." 8vo (9.2 x 6.1 in.), cloth, d.j. First ed.

APPIAH, KWAME ANTHONY and HENRY LOUIS GATES, Jr.
Africana: The Encyclopedia of the African and African American Experience.
Oxford University Press, 1999; 2005.
5 Vols. 4500 pp., 1000 photographs, maps, illus. Expanded to 8 vols. No new information or in-depth discussion of the visual arts. Names of visual artists included in the accounts of each period of black history are often lumped into a one sentence list; very few have additional biographical entries. [As of 2011, far more substantial information on most of the artists is available from Wikipedia than is included in this Encyclopedia.] Includes mention of: James Presley Ball, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David A. Bailey, Edward M. Bannister, Richmond Barthé, Cornelius Battey, Romare Bearden, Dawoud Bey, Everald Brown, Elizabeth Catlett, Dana Chandler, Roland Charles, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Albert V. Chong, Robert H. Colescott, Allan R. Crite, Beauford Delaney, Joseph Delaney, Murry Depillars, Jeff Donaldson, Aaron Douglas, Robert S.

Scurlock, Charles Sebree, Johannes Segogela, Twins Seven-Seven, Coreen Simpson, Lorna Simpson, Moneta Sleet, Marvin & Morgan Smith, Renée Stout, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Hank Willis Thomas, Dox Thrash, James Vanderzee, Christian Walker, the Wall of Respect, Laura Wheeler Waring, Augustus Washington, Carrie Mae Weems, Charles White, Cynthia Wiggins, Carla Williams, Pat Ward Williams, et al. The entry on African Women Artists includes an odd and out-of-date collection of names: Elizabeth Olowu, Agnes Nyanhongo, Alice Sani, Iriji Efflatoun, Grace Chigumira, Thersa Musoke, Palma Sintoa, Elsa Jacob, and Terhas Iyassu. Hopefully future editions will follow the path of the substantially expanded edition of 2005 and will alter the overall impression that black visual artists are not worth the time and attention of the editors. [Note: Now out-of-print and available only through exorbitant subscription to the Oxford African American Studies Center (OAASC) a single database incorporating multiple Oxford encyclopedias, ongoing addiitions will apparently be unavailable to individuals or to most small libraries in the U.S. or worldwide.] 4to (29 cm.; 10.9 x 8.6 in.), cloth.

Checklist of Afro-American Art and Artists.

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.

Before the Eyes of All Nations: African-American Identity and Historical Memory at the Exposition of 1876.
1999.
In: Pennsylvania History 65 (Summer 1998):300--323, Mentions the prize-winning inclusion of art by Robert S. Duncanson, and Edmonia Lewis (Death of Cleopatra and other pieces.) Edward M. Bannister received a gold medal for his Under the Oaks. Mentions the report that "Upon learning of Bannister's race, the judges considered rescinding the award, but the white competitors insisted that Bannister retain his prize." The essay also cites a lengthy description of the elaborate pedestal attributed to Edmonia Lewis that was designed to serve as the support for the monument to Bishop Allen -- the most highly publicized African American presence at the Centennial Exposition. Unfortunately, during the transport of the monument from Cincinnati to Philadelphia, while crossing a river in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley, a railroad accident rendered the entire pedestal irreparably damaged and so Lewis's contribution to this commemorative piece was lost.

Substantial texts by McElroy and Gates on the dehumanizing depictions of African Americans throughout American history.

The video mentions a roster of 8 additional Harlem Renaissance artists who were omitted from the exhibition: Richmond Barthé, Selma Burke, Aaron Douglas, Meta Warrick Fuller, Palmer Hayden, Malvin Gray Johnson, William H. Johnson, and James Vanderzee.)

NELSON, CHARMAINE A.
The Color of Stone: Sculpting the Black Female Subject in Nineteenth-Century America.
Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2007.
234 pp., illus., notes, bibliog., index. The text focuses on a key, but often neglected, aspect of neoclassical sculpture--color. Considering three major works--Hiram Powers's "Greek Slave," William Wetmore Story's "Cleopatra," and Edmonia Lewis's "Death of Cleopatra"-- Nelson explores the intersection of race, sex, and class in terms of 19th century colonial histories of visual representation as well as issues of artistic production, identity, and subjectivity. Her discussion engages prevalent racial discourses and examines the image of the black female subject in high art. Extensive quotations from the letters of Lewis's white female supporters Anne Whitney and Lydia Maria Childs. Brief mention of Eugene Warburg and Robert S. Duncanson. 8vo (9.75 x 6.25 in.), cloth.

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."

Scott, Maren Hassinger, Lorraine O'Grady, Winnie Owens-Hart, Adrienne Hoard, Oliver Jackson, Frederick Eversley, Glenn Ligon, Sam Middleton, Ed Hamilton, Pat Ward Williams, etc. and omitting a generation of well-established contemporary artists who emerged during the late 70s-90s. [Note: a newly revised edition of 2012 (ten pages longer) has not rendered it a worthy reference work on this topic.] 8vo (25 com), laminated papered boards.
