David Driskell - The Doorway Portfolio
One of the world's leading authorities on the subject of African American Art, Prof. David C. Driskell is highly regarded as both an artist and a scholar. In 1995, he was named Distinguished University Professor of Art and taught until his retirement in 1998. In 2001, the University of Maryland established the David C. Driskell Center to honor Prof. Driskell as an Artist, Art Historian, Collector, Curator, and Scholar. The Center honors Prof. Driskell by preserving the rich heritage of African American visual art and culture. He has lectured across the globe and his works are included in major collections of art museums throughout the world.
The Doorway Portfolio:
In the twelve sumptuous serigraphs in this portfolio, David C. Driskell represents the doorway as a passage between two worlds — interior and exterior, material and spiritual, real and imagined,” writes Phillips Collection Curator, Elsa Smithgall. Colorful, and full of movement and rhythms, the images vary from recognizable pictorial views to highly abstract representations of the idea of a passageway. Edition of 75, 2008.
