About

GOING TO CHURCH was the very first limited edition print created by the self taught African American artist William Tolliver (b.1951-2000) in 1987 in NYC. It is an original hand drawn lithograph (not a photo reproduction or digital print) printed on archival printmaking paper 100% acid free, using hand lithography techniques. Print size - 26.5" x 39.5", image size - 22.5" x36.25" , Edition size - 350. William Tolliver 's recognizable artistic style freely combines the colors of Chagall with the solid compositional principles of Cezanne and the mood and forms reminiscent of Modigliani and Picasso. GOING TO CHURCH depicts a Southern Landscape with a group of black country folk - three females clothed in long dresses, and two youths wearing blue jeans, all walking on their way to religious services. The black textured drawing background defines the composition's frame and outlines the rural landscape, trees, and sky with the procession of human figures in the foreground, a rainbow of multicolors creating a vibrant, almost stained-glass visual effect .
