Featuring an illustration of the painting “Woman Holding a Jug” by James A.

The work comprises a “Foreword”; “The Negro Takes His Place in American Art”; “New Happenings in the Field of Negro Art”; a list of Awards and Honors conferred by the Harmon Foundation (starting in 1926); entries for the 107 works exhibitied; 11 pages illustrating some of these works; and biographical sketches of the black artists “whose works have been shown in Harmon Foundation exhibitions.”

Established in 1922 by the white real-estate developer William E. Harmon, the Harmon Foundation was one of the first U.S. arts organizations to recognize African-American achievement in the fields of education, industry, art, literature, music, race relations, and science. Many of these achievement emerged out of the Harlem Renaissance. The Harmon Foundation partnered with the National Alliance of Art and Industry to produce this exhibition.
