Art And Race Matters: The Career Of Robert Colescott
ART AND RACE MATTERS: THE CAREER OF ROBERT COLESCOTT is the most comprehensive book devoted to the life of the pioneering African American artist. The large volume surveys the entirety of Colescott’s body of work. Contributions by more than 10 curators and writers provide a detailed stylistic analysis of his politically inflected oeuvre. Known for paintings that exposed the ugly ironies of race in America from the 1970s through the late 1990s, Colescott profoundly influenced generations of artists that followed him.
