Description

Experience the art of Jerry Pinkney, a master of the American picture book whose unforgettable visual narratives reflect deeply felt  personal and cultural themes, bearing witness to the African-American experience, the wonders of classic literature, and the wisdom in well-loved folk tales. A belief in the ability of images to speak about and to humanity is at this legendary artist’s core. His artworks celebrating life’s small but extraordinary moments and significant  historical events reflect the power of visual storytelling in our lives, “becoming the voice that others may not have had.”

Honoring an artistic journey that has continued for fifty years, Witness: The Art of Jerry Pinkney  features luminous watercolor paintings and richly detailed drawings  created for best-loved books and carefully-researched historical  commissions.  

A popular and critically acclaimed artist, Jerry Pinkney was recently presented with the prestigious Caldecott Medal, awarded to the illustrator of the most distinguished American picturebook for children  that year. The recipient of five Caldecott Honor Medals, five Coretta  Scott King Awards, four Coretta Scott King Honor Awards, and a life time achievement award from the Society of Illustrators in New York, the artist has also served on the Board of the National Endowment for the  Arts, and on the National Postal Service’s Citizen Stamp Advisory Council.
