Hopefully future editions will follow the path of the substantially expanded edition of 2005 and will alter the overall impression that black visual artists are not worth the time and attention of the editors.

There are many glaring omissions John Biggers, Mildred Howard, Lois Mailou Jones, Martin Puryear, Bob Thompson, etc. And some odd summary comments (for example, Norman Lewis's work is described as "improvisatory environments"), but it's hard to quibble with the first survey of American art to give more than token acknowledgement to the work of African American artists.

The 1985 publication is a summary compiled from the original 34 volumes of American Art Annual: Who's Who in Art, no new entries.

Poston, "Augusta Savage, " Metropolitan Magazine, Jan. The career of Augusta Savage was fostered by the climate of the Harlem Renaissance. During the 1930s, she was well known in Harlem as a sculptor, art teacher, and community art program director.

Born Augusta Christine Fells in Green Cove Springs, Florida, on February 29, 1892, she was the seventh of fourteen children of Cornelia and Edward Fells. Her father was a poor Methodist minister who strongly opposed his daughter's early interest in art. My father licked me four or five times a week, " Savage once recalled, "and almost whipped all the art out of me. In 1907 Savage married John T.

Moore, and the following year her only child, Irene, was born. Moore died several years after the birth of their daughter. Around 1915 the widowed artist married James Savage, a carpenter whose surname she retained after their divorce during the early 1920s.

In 1923, Savage married Robert L. Poston, her third and final husband, who was an associate of Marcus Garvey.

Savage's father moved his family from Green Cove Springs to West Palm Beach, Florida, in 1915. Lack of encouragement from her family and the scarcity of local clay meant that Savage did not sculpt for almost four years. In 1919 a local potter gave her some clay from which she modeled a group of figures that she entered in the West Palm Beach County Fair. The figures were awarded a special prize and a ribbon of honor. Encouraged by her success, Savage moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where she hoped to support herself by sculpting portrait busts of prominent blacks in the community. When that patronage did not materialize, Savage left her daughter in the care of her parents and moved to New York City. During the mid-1920s when the Harlem Renaissance was at its peak, Savage lived and worked in a small studio apartment where she earned a reputation as a portrait sculptor, completing busts of prominent personalities such as W. Du Bois and Marcus Garvey. Savage was one of the first artists who consistently dealt with black physiognomy. Her best-known work of the 1920s was Gamin, an informal bust portrait of her nephew, for which she was awarded a Julius Rosenwald Fellowship to study in Paris in 1929.

There she studied briefly with Felix Benneteau at the Académie de la Grand Chaumière. She had two works accepted for the Salon d'Automne and exhibited at the Grand Palais in Paris. In 1931 Savage won a second Rosenwald fellowship, which permitted her to remain in Paris for an additional year. She also received a Carnegie Foundation grant for eight months of travel in France, Belgium, and Germany.

Following her return to New York in 1932, Savage established the Savage Studio of Arts and Crafts and became an influential teacher in Harlem. In 1934 she became the first African-American member of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors. In 1937 Savage's career took a pivotal turn. She was appointed the first director of the Harlem Community Art Center and was commissioned by the New York World's Fair of 1939 to create a sculpture symbolizing the musical contributions of African Americans. Negro spirituals and hymns were the forms Savage decided to symbolize in The Harp. Inspired by the lyrics of James Weldon Johnson's poem Lift Every Voice and Sing, The Harp was Savage's largest work and her last major commission.

She took a leave of absence from her position at the Harlem Community Art Center and spent almost two years completing the sixteen-foot sculpture. Cast in plaster and finished to resemble black basalt, The Harp was exhibited in the court of the Contemporary Arts building where it received much acclaim.

The sculpture depicted a group of twelve stylized black singers in graduated heights that symbolized the strings of the harp. The sounding board was formed by the hand and arm of God, and a kneeling man holding music represented the foot pedal.

No funds were available to cast The Harp, nor were there any facilities to store it. After the fair closed it was demolished as was all the art. Upon returning to the Harlem Community Art Center, Savage discovered that her position had been assumed by someone else. This initiated a series of frustrations that virtually forced Savage to end her career. The Harlem Community Art Center closed during World War II when federal funds were cut off.

In 1939 Savage made an attempt to reestablish an art center in Harlem with the opening of the Salon of Contemporary Negro Art. She was founder-director of the small gallery that was the first of its kind in Harlem. During the spring of 1939, Savage held a small, one-woman show at the Argent Galleries in New York. Depressed by the loss of her job and the collapse of both of her attempts to establish art centers, Savage retreated to the small town of Saugerties, New York, in the Catskill Mountains in 1945 and reestablished relations with her daughter and her daughter's family.

Although her artistic production decreased, she found peace and seclusion in Saugerties. Savage visited New York occasionally, taught children in local summer camps, and produced a few portrait sculptures of tourists. During her years in Saugerties, Savage also explored her interest in writing children's stories, murder mysteries, and vignettes, although none were published.

In 1962 Savage moved back to New York and lived with her daughter. She died in relative obscurity on March 26, 1962, following a long bout with cancer. Savage effectively captured the essence of her subject's personality in this diminutive bust. Wearing a "be-bop" cap with its wide brim cocked jauntily to the side, the figure tilts his head in the same direction and looks past the observer with a slightly sullen expression of typical boyhood defiance. The sculpture was modeled in clay, cast in plaster, and painted to resemble the award-winning version.

In addition, the open collar of his wrinkled shirt and crumpled cap contribute to the sculpture's informality and immediate appeal. Perry Free within Ourselves: African-American Artists in the Collection of the National Museum of American Art Washington, D. National Museum of American Art in Association with Pomegranate Art Books, 1992. Augusta Savage always knew she wanted to be an artist and moved to New York City in 1920 with a burning desire to become a sculptor in six months. She enrolled at the Cooper Union and in 1929 won a scholarship to travel to Paris and Rome.

Savage was the first African American to be elected to the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors and later became the director of the Harlem Community Art Center. She believed that teaching others was far more important than creating art herself, and explained her motivation in an interview: If I can inspire one of these youngsters to develop the talent I know they possess, then my monument will be in their work.

No one could ask for more than that. (Davis, Contributions of Black Women to America, 1982). A gifted sculptor, Florida-born Augusta Savage fought poverty, racism and sexism to become a prominent figure in the Harlem Renaissance, the period of African-American cultural outpouring in New York City during the 1920s and'30s. Her extraordinary talent opened many doors that led to her becoming one of the most influential black teachers of her time and a strong voice for civil rights for blacks. Born Augusta Christine Fells in Green Cove Springs, Florida in 1892, she was the seventh of 14 children born to Edward and Cornelia Fells.

As a child, Fells exhibited a talent and a passion for sculpting small objects using red clay she found in her neighborhood. The habit often got her into trouble with her father, a part-time minister, who regarded his child's handiwork as "graven images" outlawed by the Bible's 10 Commandments. When she turned 15, her family moved to West Palm Beach. At her new school, Augusta's talent quickly caught the attention of her teachers.

In her senior year, the school's principal began paying her a dollar a day to teach clay-modeling lessons. In 1907, at age 16 Augusta married her first husband, John T. The couple had one child, a daughter named Irene Connie Moore. When Moore died a few years later, Augusta married again in 1915. The marriage, to James Savage, a carpenter and laborer, soon ended in divorce, but Augusta chose to keep his last name.

Despite her personal setbacks, Savage managed to work diligently on her art. A series of sculptures of religious objects, including the Virgin Mary, changed her father's opinion of her art. The venture failed commercially, but set Savage's resolve to become a serious artist. After a year at the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College for Negroes (now Florida A&M University) in Tallahassee, Savage got recommended by the superintendent of the county fair where she'd won her first prize to study art in New York. She was accepted at prestigious Cooper Union, which offered tuition-free education to select students. Savage was so well-received at Cooper that she was given a scholarship to help support herself. She soon garnered her first New York commissionsincluding a bust of W. DuBois for the New York Public Library in Harlem and another bust of the famous black leader, Marcus Garvey, head of the Universal Negro Improvement Association.

On the latter project, she met Robert L. Poston, one of Garvey's associates.

They were married in 1923. Savage, then 32, never remarried. After finishing her studies at Cooper in 1924, Savage applied for a special summer scholarship to study in France. When the scholarship committee learned that she was black, they denied her application.

Stung, Savage responded by mailing letters to newspapers charging racism. Even though the event became a city-wide scandal, the committee stood by the decision.

Savage's life became extremely difficult when tragedy struck her family in Florida. After her father became paralyzed and a hurricane destroyed her parents' house, she moved her family into her small apartment in New York.

In 1925, Savage was offered another chance to study overseas, a scholarship that would pay for her education in Italybut not the travel expenses. But in the late 1920s, Savage's luck changed when a photo of one of her latest worksa sculpture of a small black youthmade the cover of Opportunitymagazine. Entitled Gamin (French for "street urchin"), the piece was a likeness of her nephew, Ellis Ford. In 1930, Savage finally realized her dream of training within the elite circles of European art. In 1931, Savage encountered the Great Depression with all its miseries. Savage struggled to find work as a sculptor, but did turn out several busts of prominent black leaders, including fellow Floridian James Weldon Johnson, Frederick Douglas and W. But most of her work during the decade focused on education instead of art. After founding her own teaching studiothe Savage Studio of Arts and CraftsSavage became active in enrolling black artists in the newly founded Works Progress Administration's Federal Art Project. She soon was tapped to direct the program, becoming a leading figure in New York's community of black artists.

In 1937, Savage won her last significant commission, a sculpture for the 1939 World's Fair. Using plaster, she created a sculpture entitled The Harp depicting numerous black figures singing, all incorporated into a surreal, 16-ft-tall harp. The work was inspired by a song that had become widely recognized as the "black national anthem""Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing, " published by James Weldon Johnson and his brother John Rosemond Johnson in 1905. Since no funds were available to cast the sculpture in metal, it was destroyed when the fair closed. After opening two galleries and seeing them both fail commercially, Savage left the art world for good in 1940, moving to a farm in Saugerties, New York, near Woodstock in the Catskill Mountains.

For 20 years, Savage lived in relative obscurity, supporting herself by teaching art and working on a mushroom farm. In 1960, she moved in with her daughter Irene in New York City, dying in 1962 from cancer.

Savage is memorialized in several ways. Her home in the Catskills is recognized by the National Register of Historical Places as the Augusta Savage House and Studio.

In 2004, the Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Artsa small public high schoolopened in Baltimore, Maryland. In 2008, her hometown of Green Cove Springs renovated Savage's old high school building and made it the headquarters of the Augusta Savage Cultural Arts Center.

A biography, In Her Hands: The Story of Sculptor Augusta Savage, written for young audiences, was published in 2009 by author Alan Schroeder. Sculptor Augusta Savage was one of the leading artists of the Harlem Renaissance as well as an influential activist and arts educator. FAMOUS FEMALE CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS. Born in Florida in 1892, Augusta Savage began creating art as a child by using the natural clay found in her hometown.

After attending Cooper Union in New York City, she made a name for herself as a sculptor during the Harlem Renaissance and was awarded fellowships to study abroad. Savage later served as a director for the Harlem Community Center and created the monumental work The Harp for the 1939 New York World's Fair. She spent most of her later years in Saugerties, New York, before her death from cancer in 1962. Augusta Savage was born Augusta Christine Fells on February 29, 1892, in Green Cove Springs, Florida.

Part of a large family, she began making art as a child, using the natural clay found in her area. Skipping school at times, she enjoyed sculpting animals and other small figures. But her father, a Methodist minister, didn't approve of this activity and did whatever he could to stop her.

Savage once said that her father almost whipped all the art out of me. Despite her father's objections, Savage continued to make sculptures. When the family moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, in 1915, she encountered a new challenge: a lack of clay. Savage eventually got some materials from a local potter and created a group of figures that she entered in a local county fair. Her work was well received, winning a prize and along the way the support of the fair's superintendent, George Graham Currie. He encouraged her to study art despite the racism of the day. After a failed attempt to establish herself as a sculptor in Jacksonville, Florida, Savage moved to New York City in the early 1920s.

Although she struggled financially throughout her life, she was admitted to study art at Cooper Union, which did not charge tuition. Before long, the school gave her a scholarship to help with living expenses as well. Savage excelled, finishing her course work in three years instead of the usual four. While at Cooper Union, she had an experience that would greatly influence her life and work: In 1923, Savage applied to a special summer program to study art in France, but was rejected because of her race.

She took the rejection as a call to action, and sent letters to the local media about the program selection committee's discriminatory practices. Savage's story made headlines in many newspapers, although it wasn't enough to change the group's decision. One committee member, Herman MacNeil, regretted the ruling and invited Savage to further hone her craft at his Long Island studio. Savage soon started to make a name for herself as a portrait sculptor. Her works from this time include busts of such prominent African Americans as W.

Savage was considered to be one of the leading artists of the Harlem Renaissance, a preeminent African-American literary and artistic movement of the 1920s and'30s. Eventually, following a series of family crises, Savage got her opportunity to study abroad. She was awarded a Julius Rosenwald fellowship in 1929, based in part on a bust of her nephew entitled Gamin. Savage spent time in Paris, where she exhibited her work at the Grand Palais. She earned a second Rosenwald fellowship to continue her studies for another year, and a separate Carnegie Foundation grant allowed her to travel to other European countries.

With portrait commissions hard to come by, she began teaching art and established the Savage Studio of Arts and Crafts in 1932. In mid-decade, she became the first black artist to join what was then known as the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors. Savage assisted many burgeoning African-American artists, including Jacob Lawrence and Norman Lewis, and lobbied the Works Projects Administration (WPA) to help other young artists find work during this time of financial crisis. She also helped found the Harlem Artists' Guild, which led to a directorial position at the WPA's Harlem Community Center. Savage was then commissioned to create a sculpture for the 1939 New York World's Fair. Inspired by the words of the poem "Lift Every Voice and Sing, " by James Weldon Johnson (who had also previously modeled for Savage), she created The Harp. Standing 16 feet tall, the work reinterpreted the musical instrument to feature 12 singing African-American youth in graduated heights as its strings, with the harp's sounding board transformed into an arm and a hand. In the front, a kneeling young man offered music in his hands.

Although considered one of her major works, The Harp was destroyed at the end of the fair. Having lost her directorial position at the Harlem Community Center while working on The Harp, Savage sought to create other art centers in the area. One notable work from this period was The Pugilist (1942)a confident and defiant figure who appears prepared to take on whatever might come his waybut she grew frustrated over her struggles to reestablish herself.

In 1945, she left the city and moved to a farm in Saugerties, New York. Later Years, Death and Legacy. Augusta Savage spent most of her remaining years in the solitude of small-town life. She taught children in summer camps, dabbled in writing and continued with her art as a hobby. Savage was married three times: The first was in 1907 to John T. Moore, with whom she had her lone child, Irene. Moore died some years afterward. Around 1915, she married carpenter James Savage, a union that ended in divorce. In 1923, she married Robert Lincoln Poston, an associate of Marcus Garvey's, but was again widowed when he passed away the following year. When Savage became ill late in life, she moved back to New York City to be with her daughter and her family.

Savage died of cancer on March 26, 1962, in New York City. While she was all but forgotten at the time of her death, Savage is remembered today as a great artist, activist and arts educator, serving as an inspiration to the many that she taught, helped and encouraged.

Augusta Savage, born Augusta Christine Fells (February 29, 1892 March 27, 1962) was an African-American sculptor associated with the Harlem Renaissance. She was also a teacher and her studio was important to the careers of a rising generation of artists who would become nationally known. She worked for equal rights for African Americans in the arts. Early life and work[edit].

Augusta Fells (Savage) was born in Green Cove Springs (near Jacksonville), Florida, on February 29, 1892, to Edward Fells, a Methodist minister, and Cornelia Murphy. [2] She began making clay figures as a child, mostly small animals, but her father was a poor Methodist minister who strongly opposed his daughters early interest in art. My father licked me four or five times a week, Savage once recalled, and almost whipped all the art out of me.

[3] This was because at that time, he believed her sculpture to be a sinful practice, based upon his interpretation of the "graven images" portion of the Bible. [4] She persevered, and the principal of her new high school in West Palm Beach, where her family relocated in 1915, [5] encouraged her talent and allowed her to teach a clay modeling class. [4] This began a lifelong commitment to teaching as well as to art. In 1907, Augusta Fells married John T. Her only child, Irene Connie Moore, was born the next year.

[5] In 1915, she married James Savage;[6][7] she kept the name of Savage throughout her life. After their divorce in the early 1920s, Augusta Savage moved back to West Palm Beach.

[5] Following this success, she sought commissions for work in Jacksonville, Florida, before departing for New York City in 1921. [4] Borglum declined to take her as a student, but encouraged her to apply to Cooper Union in New York City, where she was admitted in October, 1921.

She was selected before 142 other women on the waiting list. [8] Her talent and ability so impressed the Cooper Union Advisory Council that she was awarded additional funds for room and board when she lost the financial support of her job as an apartment caretaker. [5] From 1921 through 1923, she studied under sculptor George Brewster. [4] She completed the four-year course of study degree in three years.

In 1923, Savage applied for a summer art program sponsored by the French government; although being more than qualified, she was turned down by the international judging committee, solely because she was black. [9] Savage was deeply upset, and questioned the committee, beginning the first of many public fights for equal rights in her life. The incident got press coverage on both sides of the Atlantic, and eventually the sole supportive committee member, sculptor Hermon Atkins MacNeilwho at one time had shared a studio with Henry Ossawa Tannerinvited her to study with him.

She later cited him as one of her teachers. After completing studies at Cooper Union, Savage worked in Manhattan steam laundries to support herself and her family. Her father had been paralyzed by a stroke, and the family's home destroyed by a hurricane.

Her family from Florida moved into her small West 137th Street apartment. During this time she obtained her first commission, for a bust of W. Du Bois for the Harlem Library. Her outstanding sculpture brought more commissions, including one for a bust of Marcus Garvey.

Her bust of William Pickens, Sr. A key figure in the NAACP, earned praise for depicting an African-American in a more humane, neutral way as opposed to stereotypes of the time, as did many of her works. In 1923, Savage married Robert Lincoln Poston, a protégé of Garvey. Thus she was unable to attend. In the 1920s writer and eccentric Joe Gould became infatuated with Savage.

He wrote her "endless letters", "telephoned her constantly", and wanted to marry her. Eventually this turned to harassment. In 1929, with assistance as well from the Julius Rosenwald Fund, Savage enrolled and attended the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, a leading Paris art school. In Paris, she studied with the sculptor Charles Despiau. [13] She exhibited and won awards in two Salons and one Exposition.

She toured France, Belgium, and Germany, researching sculpture in cathedrals and museums. Augusta Savage with one of her sculptures for the Federal Art Project c. The Great Depression had almost stopped art sales. She pushed on, and in 1934 became the first African-American artist to be elected to the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors. She then launched the Savage Studio of Arts and Crafts, located in a basement on West 143rd Street in Harlem.

She opened her studio to anyone who wanted to paint, draw, or sculpt. Her many young students would include the future nationally known artists Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis, and Gwendolyn Knight. Another student was the sociologist Kenneth B.

Clark, whose later research contributed to the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education that ruled school segregation unconstitutional. Her school evolved into the Harlem Community Art Center; 1500 people of all ages and abilities participated in her workshops, learning from her multi-cultural staff, and showing work around New York City.

Funds from the Works Progress Administration helped, but old struggles of discrimination were revived between Savage and WPA officials who objected to her having a leadership role. Savage received a commission from the 1939 New York World's Fair; she created Lift Every Voice and Sing (also known as "The Harp"), inspired by the song by James Weldon and Rosamond Johnson. The work reinterpreted the musical instrument to feature 12 singing African-American youth in graduated heights as its strings, with the harp's sounding board transformed into an arm and a hand. [15] Savage did not have funds to have it cast in bronze, or to move and store it. Like other temporary installations, the sculpture was destroyed at the close of the fair.

Savage opened two galleries, whose shows were well attended and well reviewed, but few sales resulted, and the galleries closed. Deeply depressed by the financial struggle, in the 1940s Savage moved to a farm in Saugerties (near Woodstock, New York), where she stayed until 1960. She worked on a mushroom farm, and made little or no effort to talk about or create art.

Her few neighbors said that she was always making something with her hands. Much of her work is in clay or plaster, as she could not often afford bronze. One of her most famous busts is titled Gamin, which is on permanent display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.

A life-sized version is in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art. At the time of its creation, Gamin, which is modeled after a Harlem youth, was voted most popular in an exhibition of over 200 works by black artists.

[17] Her style can be described as realistic, expressive, and sensitive. Though her art and influence within the art community is documented, the location of much of her work is unknown.

In 1945, Savage retired from the art world. She taught art to children and wrote children's stories before she died. [2] Savage died of cancer on March 26, 1962, in New York City. The Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Arts, a Baltimore, Maryland public high school, is named in her honor. In 2001, her home in Saugerties, New York, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Augusta Savage House and Studio.

[18] In 2007 the City of Green Cove Springs, Florida nominated her to be inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame; she was inducted the spring of 2008.
