Black Face by George Hunt
Original Oil on Canvas
Size 8″ x 10″

George Hunt was born in rural Lake Charles, LA in 1940 where he was reared by his single mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Mr. Hunt advanced his formal education at the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff and later at NYU in the graduate program where he studied under Hale Woodruff, noted Harlem Renaissance artist.

In the 1960’s George started incorporating the cubism style of painting in his own style. His personal stamp in the style includes collage, vibrant colors and lively textures. As a youth George was personally connected to one of the most devastating periods in American history as he was one of the pallbearers assisting in putting Dr. King’s body on a plane for his return to Georgia to be laid to rest. In 1993 Mr. Hunt created a piece titled “I Am A Man” as a tribute to the sanitation worker’s strike. Today that piece hangs in the National Museum of Civil Rights and will forever be connected with the legacy of George Hunt.

    naturally like your web site however you have to check the spelling on several
    of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality nevertheless
    I will certainly come back again.

    Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience
    so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
