Outsider Artist, Mr. X

This powerful painting called "Remembering Rodney King" was created by an African American self-taught artist whose name is Gerald Thornton. He signs all his work "X" because he wants to remain as nameless as the slaves who were torn from the lives they knew, captured and brought to this country. The painting is 20" x 30" and is mixed media on cardboard, in a metal frame.  $300
What better time to purchase a painting such as this!
