A Legend Dimly Told
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
Robert H. Colescott, born in Oakland, California in 1925, was a painter of Afro-American life and social commentary in a semi-abstract, antic, cartoon, anecdotal style related in composition to the early Cubism of French artists Marc Chagall and Fernand Leger, with whom he studied in Paris for a year.

Of his figurative painting, it was written that his "garishly, powerful canvases lampooned racial and sexual stereotypes with rakish imagery, lurid colors, and almost tangible glee.  . (showing 500 of 4302 characters).
