Delaware Art Museum spotlights the work of Black artists in our gallery dedicated to modern art. The paintings, prints, and sculptures on view celebrate the rich legacy of African American modernism between the 1920s and the 1970s.

Alongside two of Jacob Lawrence’s prints, the installation features favorites by Romare Bearden, Aaron Douglas, Norman Lewis, and Edward Loper, Sr., as well as recently acquired examples by Humbert Howard, Malvin Gray Johnson, Robert Neal, and Beulah Ecton Woodard.

These pieces were created by artists working from Wilmington to Los Angeles and were collected by the Museum between 1937 and 2017.
