Gwathmey (1903-1988) is one of the most celebrated painter-printmakers of African-American life in the southern United States. As an outsider to the African-American rural communities, his works are that of an observer, picturesque scenes of everyday life. He managed unbiasedly to imbue humanity and an unromanticized dignity into his subjects. Williams 10.
