Inspired by Edward Mitchell Bannister

Edward Mitchell Bannister (ca. 1828 – January 9, 1901) was a Black Canadian-American painter. Bannister was born in St. Andrew New Brunswick and moved to New England in the late 1840s. While Bannister was well known in the artistic community of his adopted home of Providence, Rhode Island and admired within the wider East Coast art world (he won a bronze medal for his large oil "Under the Oaks" at the 1876 , he was largely forgotten for almost a century for a complexity of reasons, mainly connected with racial prejudice. With the ascendency of the Civil Rights movement in the 1970s, his work was again celebrated and collected.
