520 "An essential figure in modern American art, William H.
Johnson (1901-1970) was a virtuoso skilled in various
media and techniques, who produced thousands of works over
a career that spanned decades, continents, and genres.
This volume considers paintings from the collection of
Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, that show
the pivotal stages in Johnson's career as a modernist
painter of post-impressionist and expressionist works
reminiscent of Cezanne, Van Gogh, and Soutine, and the
vernacular paintings in which he articulates his specific,
unforgettable voice as an artist. In this lavishly
illustrated book, some of the world's premier scholars of
William H. Johnson and African American art history
examine the artist and his artistic genius in fresh new
ways, including his relationship with one of his earliest
patrons, the Harmon Foundation; the critical role played
by scholars at the nation's historically black colleges
and universities; the context of Johnson's experiences
living in Harlem and his deep southern roots; and Johnson
as a trailblazer in the genres of still life and landscape
