Alma Thomas

We took inspiration from Alma Thomas's painting, Resurrection, the first artwork by an African American woman to hang in the public spaces of the White House and enter the permanent collection. Thomas was a thoroughly Abstract artist despite the expectation that African-American artists would address social concerns and issues of identity. But Thomas stuck to her premises, saying, “Through colour, I have sought to concentrate on beauty and happiness, rather than on man’s inhumanity to man.”
