Artstor and the Amistad Research Center are now making available in the Digital Library nearly 300 images from the Center’s art collection, focusing on works by Harlem Renaissance masters from the Harmon Foundation.
The collection in Artstor includes Jacob Lawrence’s The Life of Toussaint L’Ouverture, the artist’s first historical series, as well as the work of many other important African American artists such as Romare Bearden, Hale Woodruff, Aaron Douglas, and Elizabeth Catlett.
The Amistad Research Center is the nation’s oldest, largest, and arguably most comprehensive independent archive specializing in the history of African Americans and other ethnic minorities. Its holdings include the papers of artists, educators, authors, business leaders, clergy, lawyers, factory workers, farmers, and musicians.
