Opinion

From Library Staff

Horace Pippin was a self taught painter who talked about the injustices of slavery and segregation in his work. Horace fought in WWI and lost the use of his right arm. This book is about Horace’s determination to heal and paint and then become an artist in galleries across the country.

From the time Pippin could hold a piece of charcoal, he loved to draw, but when he returned home from World War I, he couldn’t even lift his right arm. How did he become an artist whose work is displayed in museums and galleries across the country? Full color illustrations.
