Black Art: an International Quarterly, Vol. 5 No. 3 (1982)


Published in 1982, this 64–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 artist/educator Jacob Lawrence. Samella Sanders Lewis, Ph.D., and Lester Sullivan chronicle Lawrence’s career—from his first contact with art and artists as a child to his stylistic development, including Lawrence’s decision to use the serial format for his paintings. Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of Lawrence’s paintings and of the artist in his studio, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
