Norman Lewis

Since February is Black History Month, I thought it was worth digging in a little bit to find out what part of US History had perhaps been missing from my education- I know for a fact of course that there are black painters making work I love (Stanley and Elias, looking at you).

After reading this great article from Art News circa 2014, I settled on Norman. If you guessed from the print below that he was influenced by Ad Reinhardt, my theory is that went both ways. Read this bio from the Smithsonian and check out this Pinterest board I made as well.
