Norman Lewis was born in Harlem, New York in 1909. As in the case of every artist, Lewis experimented with various styles and phases. In the 1930s, his style was predominantly figurative. In the 1940s, abstraction was slowly becoming apparent in his figurative works. It wasn’t until the 1950s that Lewis’s mature unique style evolved. He shared philosophical concepts in his creative approach to his work with the artists of the Abstract Expressionist movement.
His works are in the permanent collection of numerous museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the National Museum of Art.
This catalogue is no longer in print. It is a very important visual experience of paintings by one of America’s most important African American Abstractionists.
