Delilah W. Pierce is considered one of Washington, DC’s “Six Washington Masters.”
From Jo Ann Lewis’s 1996 article:
Tibbs’s collection has not gone unseen here.
He organized several important exhibitions at the house-museum over the years, including “Surrealism and the Afro-American Artist.” In 1983, “Six Washington Masters,” featuring works by Richard Dempsey, Lois Jones, Delilah Pierce, James Porter, Alma Thomas and James Wells, helped revive the forgotten careers of several of these artists.
