Summary
"War had a profound effect on Horace Pippin. Stationed in Europe during World War I, Pippin saw active combat as part of the Harlem Hellfighters regiment, a group of mostly African American soldiers. While he was serving bravely for a country that didn't yet fully recognize his civil rights, his right arm was injured by sniper fire--but he harbored far deeper wounds inflicted by the horrors of battle. He picked up a paintbrush as a way to treat his injury, but learning to make art soothed him in mind, body, and soul. In this in-depth biography, learn more about Pippin's life as a self-taught artist and how his art --ranging from self-portraits to landscapes to domestic scenes and touching on issues like slavery and segregation--drew the attention of museums, private collectors, and even Hollywood stars of the 1940s. Though his career was cut short by a fatal stroke when he was just 58 years old, Pippin's work left an indelible mark on American art."--Provided by publisher
