William Johnson (1901-1970), a major figure in 20th-century American Art, studied at the National Academy of Design in New York. Prior to World War II he spent time learning from European artists in southern France. You are invited to journey through a chronological timeline of Johnson’s works. In this series of colorful paintings, you can observe how his style evolved. The “Fighters for Freedom” collection depicts famous men and women who were leaders in the quest for racial equality. In “Scenes from City Life and Country Life,” universal themes are portrayed that touch the human spirit. Activities for elementary students, such as creating a self-portrait, planning a make-believe trip, or writing a story about one of the paintings, accompany each page.
