Taken from the collection of the National Gallery of Art, the works in this 2020 wall calendar survey key moments in African American art and represent widely varied artistic styles. The oldest painting here, created prior to the Civil War, lacks any hint of the artist’s identity, existing within the formal traditions of the era. With the early 20th century came a transformation: the Harlem Renaissance, a movement whose art bursts with powerful expressions of African American life. Artists raised in this cultural moment went on to create a wealth of socially conscious works in the decades that followed. Though some artists worked outside this arc—either self-taught or decidedly apart—new narrative works affirmed the role of African American art as valuable commentary, a cornerstone of resistance, and a celebration of black heritage.
