William H. Johnson Doodle Art Activity
Explore the work of Harlem Renaissance artist William H. Johnson (1901-1970). Considered one of the greatest American artists of the 20th century, Johnson explored the daily life of African Americans in his colorful paintings shown here. He also painted Danish landscapes from his twelve years spent travelling in Europe, mostly in Denmark and Norway. His personal story of overcoming poverty, racism, and a grade-school education in the rural U.S. south to become an internationally recognized artist is as inspiring as his work.
