Charles White: A Retrospective

from the manufacturer

Charles White (19181979) is best known for bold, large-scale paintings and drawings of African Americans, meticulously executed works that depict human relationships and socioeconomic struggles with a remarkable sensitivity. This comprehensive study offers a much-needed reexamination of the artists career and legacy. With handsome reproductions of Whites finest paintings, drawings, and prints, the volume introduces hiswork to contemporary audiences, reclaims his place in the art-historical narrative, and stresses the continuing relevance of his insistent dedication to producing positive social change through art. Tracing Whites career from his emergence in Chicago to his mature practice as an artist, activist, and educator in New York and Los Angeles, leading experts provide insights into Whites creative process, his work as a photographer, his political activism and interest in history, the relationship between his art and his teaching, and the importance of feminism in his work. A preface by Kerry James Marshall addresses Whites significance as a mentor to an entire generation of practitioners and underlines the importance of this largely overlooked artist.
