Harvest Talk, 1953 Art Map Location #43

Charles Wilbert White

The Art Institute of Chicago

A native Chicagoan and a graduate of the School of the Art Institute, Charles White made his reputation through a series of powerful paintings and murals that forcefully conveyed African-American history, as well as minority struggle in the 1930s and 1940s. A staunch Socialist, Harvest Talk was one of six drawings White produced for a portfolio distributed in the communist journal, Masses and Mainstream, and exhibited together in 1953 at A.C.A. Galleries in New York. Max and Lorraine Gordon, impresarios of the Village Vanguard nightclub in New York were the original owners of the drawing.
