About the Item

America's Mom Lithograph, 2016 Signed lower right (see photo) Numbered lower left From: America’s Family (Intended suite of five Images, only four produced) Edition: 40, (20 of which are for sale) This impression numbered 19/40 Published by Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden, Dallas, Texas and Thomas French Fine Art, LLC, Fairlawn, Ohio. Printed on Arches paper by James Reed at Milestone Graphics. Reed chop stamp lower left corner Printed on Arches paper Condition: Excellent (mint) Image/sheet size: 27 1/2 x 22 inches America’s Family and America’s Family II In 2016, Sedrick Huckaby worked on two series of lithographs published by Thomas French Fine Art and Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden entitled America’s Family and America's Family II. The series of lithographs include portraits of the artist’s family—America’s Dad, Mom, Son, Daughter and Child. This publication marks the artist’s first experience with the classic lithographic process utilizing 19th century lithography stones and learning the old world tradition of stone lithography from the master printer James Reed, owner of Milestone Graphics. Reed was a Ford Foundation Fellow at Tamarind in 1973-1975. He worked closely with Huckaby and printed the editions. A video on the legacy of stone lithography is being created by American View Productions (Dan Makara, Executive Producer & Frank Borres, Director), including a segment of Huckaby creating these lithographs with Reed at Milestone Graphics. Born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1975, Huckaby has been creating art since his childhood. In 1995, he began his formal art studies at Texas Wesleyan University in his hometown. After a brief stay he transferred to Boston University, where he received a BFA degree. He then earned a MFA degree from Yale University in New Haven, CT. Huckaby is known for his draftsmanship and powerful use of color. His exploration of cultural roles and the heritage of the African American family are well documented. His work initially evolved from portraiture to objects and interiors that venerate his personal family legacy rooted in Fort Worth, TX. Portraying these familiar subjects on a large scale and pushing his use of materials, Huckaby defines the significance of family and tradition while touching on the importance of community in our culture. America’s Family represents a continuation of this exploration of these themes. For the past few years Huckaby has concentrated his efforts on a series of quilt paintings. One of the series he created is a tribute to both of his Grandmothers and a celebration of the African American quilting tradition. Inspired by John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, Sedrick used actual quilts sewn by family members as models for this 80’ long painting of the four seasons. Metaphorically, these quilts document significant events in his family history. The expressive prints in America’s Family pay homage to the rich use of thick impasto paint which he uses to create these large quilt murals and portraits. Huckaby has received the 2001 Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, the 2004 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant Program Award, and was the 2008 recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship Award, which allowed him to finish his monumental A Love Supreme. In 2016, he was one of the winners of the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition at The National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D. C. His work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Recently, Huckaby’s 18-by-14-foot oil painting Hidden in Plain Site (2011) was on view in the Amon Carter Museum’s atrium.

Corneille was born in Liège, Belgium, although his parents were Dutch and moved back to the Netherlands when he was 12. He studied art at the Academy of Art in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. He was one of the founders of the REFLEX movement in 1948 and in 1949 he was also one of the founders of the COBRA movement, which has had great influence on Scandinavian art. He was active within the group from the beginning, not only painting but also publishing poetry in the Cobra magazine. He was a cofounder of the Experimentele Groep in Holland [nl]. Corneille was inspired by the drawings of children, and believed in the importance of approaching children with art that connects with their experience. When he heard during a Cobra Museum visit in the nineties that there was an “Art Lending for Children” he talked with the founder Roby Bellemans and asked him to send more information to his home in Paris about this project. He decided to promote the initiative. He started with a support list and persuaded other artists such as Shinkichi Tajiri...
