Southern Landscape (Circa 1938-40), oil on canvas by African American artist Eldzier Cortor. From the collection of the Brooklyn Museum #art #artist #EldzierCortor #brooklynmuseum

One of Eldzier Cortor's first moments of popular recognition came in 1946, when Life magazine published one of his figures, a seminude woman. He received prestigious fellowships — including the Guggenheim, which allowed him to travel to Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, where he was exposed to new examples of art and culture in the African diaspora. “The idea is to get someone to pause awhile” instead of walking past a picture. You try to just get them to stay with that painting for a while, you don’t just burst past it there. And that’s the idea. If you can get someone, to catch their eye a little bit . . . // ELDZIER CORTOR - Artist

Eldzier Cortor. January 10, 1916-November 26, 2015. From the New York Times obituary : "Eldzier Cortor, a painter and printmaker perhaps best known for his elegant paintings of nude black women created when such works were seldom seen in the mainstream art world, died on Thursday at his son’s home in Seaford, N.Y., on Long Island. He was 99. Mr. Cortor’s works are in major museum collections, including those of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. His work was also featured in the inaugural show at the new Whitney Museum of American Art, “America Is Hard to See.” As a young man, Mr. Cortor studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and was employed by the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project, created in 1935 as part of the New Deal to support artists."

Still thinking about Eldzier Cortor 2 days after visiting the MFA. Dance Composition No. XL. #boston #eldziercortor #mfa #museumoffinearts #art #artisforeveryone

Dance Composition No.35. Eldzier Cortor. One of the joys of roaming museums is discovering something that is new to me. Eldzier Cortor was an African American printmaker and artist. The MFA has a display of his work along one hallway. His work draws from African art and Surrealism. Many of the pieces on display were inspired by dance. #boston #mfa #museumoffinearts #eldziercortor #art #artisforeveryone #dance

All of my loves. One wall. Three generations 💜✊🏽💜#eldziercortor #fireleibaez #henryossawatanner #painters #studiomuseum #harlem #regardingthefigure
