I Have a Dream by Charles White

October 20th, 2018

We are pleased to share an important, late lithograph by Charles White (American, 1918-1979).  I Have A Dream 1976, shows the masterful draftsmanship for which White is celebrated.  This elegant work shows us a sleeping child cradled by serene, upward looking woman.  The title references the iconic speech given by Reverend Martin Luther King Jr on the occasion of the 1963 March on Washington calling for an end to racism and for civil and economic rights for all. This important work was commissioned by the Graphic Arts Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

The acclaimed exhibition, Charles White: A Retrospective is on view at New York’s Museum of Modern Art thru January 13 2019.
