Essie Green Galleries ~ William Edouard Scott

Indiana artist William Edouard Scott (1884 – 1964) created paintings and murals throughout his life that focused on the stature of African Americans. Generating artwork from locations in Paris, Mexico, Haiti and the American South, as well as Indiana, he interpreted blacks on canvas in positions of prominence doing noble deeds; a bold and uncommon approach for his time. He rejected the conventional portrait of African Americans as menial laborers or historical slaves.
