<p style="direction:ltr;font-size:14px;line-height:1.4em;color:#444;font-family:"Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;margin:0 0 1em">Haitian artist François Turenne des Pres depict women in his community through lively compositions of females gathering, conversing, and working. Also from Haiti. Hector Hyppolite rendered images of his country’s national history, politics and everyday life using cardboard and natural materials. His works incorporate symbols and imagery related to both Haitian voodoo religion and Christianity, with an emphasis on the vibrancy of the subject matter rather than meticulous execution. Another view of Haiti — although one created from afar — if offered by four of the forty-one scenes of Jacob Lawrence’s print series <em>Toussaint L’Overture</em>, which imparts the history of the leader of the Haitian revolution (1791–1804), considered the most successful revolution carried out by slaves.</p>
<p style="direction:ltr;font-size:14px;line-height:1.4em;color:#444;font-family:"Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;margin:0 0 1em">Like Lawrence, the Afro-Brazilian painter José Roberto Leonel Barreto is recognized as an artist and an educator. His abstract watercolors, which play with space by juxtaposing bold and translucent shapes in a mix of dense and sparse patterns, reflect his studies, travels and work with his family of artisanal saddlers. In detailed maps by Mexican painter and illustrator Miguel Covarrubias, the viewer is exposed on a miniaturized scale to the landscape, events and people of color of the Caribbean and Mexico. Alongside similarly diverse examples by additional artists, these works offer a window into the history and culture of the people from these regions, and they attest to the influence of the African diaspora throughout the Americas.</p>
