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
       painting."--Publisher's website.
