This map isn't art, exactly, but it was produced by a noteworthy African-American artist. Grafton Taylor Brown (1841-1918) was born to two free African-American parents in Pennsylvania, but sometimes passed as white. He became a successful landscape painter and lithographer in California, British Columbia, Montana, and Minnesota. This mining map is a good example of his commercial lithography. Listed and dated in Chandler's Brown biography, page 198.
