Astonishment and power by Wyatt MacGaffey ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bringing together the minkisi tradition of the Kongo peoples of Central Africa and the art of Renée Stout, "Atonishment & Power" explores a complex African visual tradition and its resonance in the work of a contemporary African-American woman artist. Minkisi, as described by Wyatt MacGaffey, are figures or operative complexes made from natural and man-made materials are intended as containers for powerful medicines. Often visually impressive, minkisi are invoked to accomplish various purposes, both to heal and to harm. In discussing minkisi, MacGaffey includes numerous early-20th-century commentaries written by young Kongo men. As Michael Harris reveals, the art of Renée Stout incorporates the forms and conceptual qualities of Kongo minkisi. The inspiration for her work derives from her personal memories and her deep interest in minkisi and African beliefs. Like minkisi, Stout's work sits at a crossroads--of the sacred and the secular, the West and Africa. Both the Kongo people and Renée Stout are masters at creating works of astonishment and power, invocation and art."--back cover

and James Herring, about how to define and to interpret African American art. The contributors address such interrelated issues as an African American aesthetic identity, personal experiences of culture, the relationship between art and politics, and the blurring of the distinction between "art" and "craft."

William H. Johnson : an American modern by William H Johnson ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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
