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.

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.
