Dox Thrash : an African American master printmaker rediscovered

"Dox Thrash came of age as an artist in the 1920s and 1930s, a time when art in the United States began to offer accurate reflections of everyday life. Known as "Regionalism," "Social Realism," or simply the "American Scene," this widespread movement encouraged artists to focus their attention on the work around them. Throughout his career Thrash drew on personal experience for the striking imagery in his work, with scenes ranging from childhood memories of the rural South to hard times in the urban centers of the North, patriotic defense work during wartime, and poetic portraits of his community and its residents."
