Description: "Emphasizing the distinctive regional character of works by modern self-taught artists in the South, this catalogue presents fine color reproductions of more than 200 paintings, drawings and sculptural pieces produced by Bill Traylor, Edgar Tolson, William Edmondson, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Thornton Dial, Elijah Pierce and some 70 other artists, including religious and visionary compositions, depictions of domestic scenes, images of animals, and portraits of political and cultural figures. Seven substantial essays discussing such topics as the influence of their cultural environment on self-taught Southern artists, the ambiguous status of the untrained artist in the contemporary art world, and the problematic relationship between works by African American folk and professional artists are followed by profiles of the featured figures and a six-part thematic presentation of the exhibited pieces, each section prefaced by a critical text. "; 1.5 x 12.5 x 9.75 Inches.
