40 Days of Black Art: My Lenten journey through images and individuals at the intersection of faith and creativity.
Day 1: Allan Rohan Crite
- Known as the grandaddy of the Boston art scene, Crite’s work centered around three main themes: Negro spirituals, religious themes that emphasize non-European aspects of the Bible, and every day African American life
- A devout Episcopalian, he classified much of his work as liturgical art
- His work is counted in notable collections such as the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Boston Athenaeum.
