Creating Their Own Image

by Lisa E. Farrington

Creating Their Own Image: The History of the African-American Women Artists

Creating Their Own Image marks the first comprehensive history of African-American women artists, from slavery to the present day. Using an analysis of stereotypes of Africans and African-Americans in western art and culture as a springboard, Lisa E. Farrington here richly details hundreds of important works–many of which deliberately challenge these same identity myths, of the carnal Jezebel, the asexual Mammy, the imperious Matriarch–in crafting a portrait of artistic creativity unprecedented in its scope and ambition.
