Malvin Gray Johnson
Date: 1896–1934
Remarks: Malvin Gray Johnson was a Modernist painter born in Greensboro, North Carolina. Johnson believed that the African-American artist did not have to express only racially driven subjects and styles in their work, but could also be influenced by the styles and subjects that influenced White-American artists. He did not see the two experiences as mutually exclusive. - Getty Union List of Artist Names
