THORNTON DIAL: IMAGE OF THE TIGER. Amiri Baraka et al. Museum of American Folk Art and New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, 1993. Published in association with Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 160 pp. with 131 ills. (122 col.). 30 x 24 cm. LC 93-15002 ISBN 0810932172 In English.
This well-illustrated catalogue showcases nearly 90 expressionistic mixed-media paintings and some 35 drawings and watercolors produced from 1988 to 1993 by self-taught African American artist Dial (b. 1928), including many large-scale narrative tableaux (often incorporating burlap, carpet, wire, sealing compound and other materials) that feature vibrant interwoven images of tigers and human figures. Commentaries on most of the exhibited pieces supplement two substantial essays exploring the personal, political and historical references in Dial's work and discussing the relationship of his imagery to traditional and contemporary African American culture.
