Described by those who knew him best as a Buddha, a Merlin, and "a cross between Brer Rabbit and St. Francis of Assisi," the artist Beauford Delaney was anything but ordinary. James Baldwin, his closest friend, wrote that "He has been starving and working all of his life - in Tennessee, in Boston, in New York, and now in Paris. He has been menaced more than any other man I know by his social circumstances and also by all the emotional and psychological stratagems he has been forced to use to survive; and, more than any other man I know, he has transcended both the inner and the outer darkness." Indeed, these themes - grinding poverty, excruciating psychological torment, and the transcendence of inner and outer darkness through the light of his art - give shape and drama to Beauford Delaney's most extraordinary life. This book tells the story of one of the most important black artists of our time.

(Rochester, NY, U.S.A.)

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. I believe this volume to be inscribed by the author, on the front free end paper. However, I don't have verification of that information. Please see the image of inscription and make your own determination. The yellow boards, are lightly soiled, but the black cloth binding with red lettering has several small areas where the black has faded to gray. The dust jacket with a self-portrait of the artist on the front panel is clean, bright and without rips, tears folds or creases, and is currently protected by a clear removable cover. This volume has the complete number line 9-1 and has no other printings mentioned. There are 221 paginated pages including the Index, but the pages with blue paper and images of the artist's work are not included in the page count. This book presents as unread, and in gift quality.
