The International Review of African American Art, Vol. 18 No. 2 (2002)


Published in 2002, this 64–page volume of the Hampton University Museum’s The International Review of African American Art is dedicated to the works of Murry DePillars, Richmond Barthé, and Archibald Motley Jr. It charts the development of DePillars’ distinctive style, which incorporates jazz, quilts, and African, African American and even some Native American influences. In addition, this issue discusses  Barthé’s James Weldon Johnson Memorial, the sculptor’s path to notoriety and his career imbuing strength and dignity in his depictions of Black males. Finally, Archibald Motley Jr.’s search for racial identity, and J. Eugene Grigsby Jr.’s first one–man retrospective are featured here.  Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, with very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
