Summary
"After decades of art collecting, prominent Washington, D.C. based activist, philanthropist, and founder of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Peggy Cooper Cafritz had amassed one of the most important collections of contemporary African American art in the country. But in 2009, the more than 300 works that composed this extraordinary collection were destroyed in the largest residential fire in Washington, D.C. history. The pioneering collection included work by Kara Walker, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley, Barkley Hendricks, David Hammons, Chris Ofili, and Carrie Mae Weems, among many others. This beautifully illustrated volume features 200 of the works that were lost, along with works that she has collected since the fire, as well as important contributions by preeminent curators and artists." -- Provided by publisher
