Product Overview

One night in the early 1930s, William Edmondson, the son of former slaves and a janitor in Nashville, Tennessee, heard God speaking to him. And so he began to carve - tombstones, birdbaths, and stylized human figures, whose spirits seemed to emerge fully formed from the stone. Soon Edmondsons talents caught the eye of prominent members of the art world, and in 1937 he became the first black artist to have a solo exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Here, in twenty-three free-verse poems, award-winning poet Elizabeth Spires gives voice to Edmondson and his creations, which tell their individual stories with wit and passion. With stunning photographs, including ten archival masterpieces by Louise Dahl-Wolfe and Edward Weston, this is a compelling portrait of a truly original American artist. *Author: Spires, Elizabeth *Subtitle: William Edmonson and His Stone Carvings *Publication Date: 2009/02/02 *Number of Pages: 56 *Binding Type: School And Library *Grade Level: 3-4 *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 9.00 *Height: 11.25
