Art History: The Harlem Renaissance - part 1

The Harlem Renaissance was an important cultural movement in the 1920’s and 30’s, and in this session we will look at the art of two of its most prominent male artists, Jacob Lawrence and Aaron Douglas. Both men integrated Modernism and traditional African motifs into their Jazz Age paintings and sculptures. We will analyze each artist’s work, including Lawrence’s Migration Series and Douglas’s Aspects of Negro Life paintings, and we will discuss the challenges they faced as African-American artists in that era. Presented by CCAD instructor Ann Shifflet.
