In researching black artists I noticed that quite a lot of their paintings of children revolved around religious or spiritual themes. I generally do not care for Christian-themed art, but I couldn’t really address Black History Month without at least touching on it, given that the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. is such a large part of black history. Well, some of these are a tad kitschy for my taste, but they are skillfully done. I particularly like the pieces “Young Soloist” and “Sheltered,” by Aaron Hicks and Edwin Lester respectively.
