A fine impression with good colors and large margins. PLEASE NOTE: This entry is number 5000 for our website. The artist Robert Gwathmey represents to me the best values in our world. He was one of the first artists to portray Black Americans in a totally positive dignified manner. In a biography it was stated "Gwathmey was once asked if he considered himself a "social artist", and he retorted by saying "I'm a social being and I don't see how you can be an artist and be separate...artists have eyes...you go home, you see things that are almost forgotten. It's always shocking."
