Hidden Masters: Artists Rising Above Anonymity
Featuring: Delilah Pierce (1904-1992)
The “Hidden Masters: Artists Rising Above Anonymity” series
explores the artwork and examines the lives of artists whose careers
were eclipsed by their contemporaries. This series will bring these
artists to the forefront and pays homage to their creative genius.
Delilah Pierce, a prolific painter, captured the essence of her
subjects with elegance and force. A 40 year survey offers a
trajectory of her work and places her in context with her peers
Elizabeth Catlett, Lois Mailou Jones and Alma Thomas.
