Black Art: an International Quarterly, Vol. 3 No. 2 (1979)


Published in 1979, this 70–page volume of the Hampton University Museum’s Black Art: an International Quarterly (predecessor to The International Review of African American Art) is dedicated to the careers of Senegalese artist Souleymane Keita, James E. Newton and Merton Simpson. Also covered in this issue are the arts of ancient Nubia and the Sudan, and the influence of these arts on the New Orleans art scene; the symbolism and imagery in the works of African American artists and Bayei basketry; and the confluence of Egyptian and Nubian art at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
