Many U.S. companies began creating propaganda during the Second World War in order to help convert their employees from simply being workers into "production soldiers on the industrial front line of war" (Design for Victory p. 66). These images include the iconic "Rosie the Riveter." General Electric used a ghoulish image of the results of a German victory to help spur on employee productivity and energize the home front into backing the war effort. This is the larger format.

Description: JOHN BIGGERS (1924 - 2001) Kumasi Market. Oil and acrylic on masonite board, 1962. 863x1524 mm; 34x60 inches. Signed and dated in oil, left edge, center. Provenance: acquired directly from the artist; the estate of Dr. Maya Angelou Exhibited: The Art of John Biggers: View from the Upper Room, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, April 2 - September 3, 1995; North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, NC; October 15, 1995 - January 13, 1996, and the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, CT, May 19 - July 14, 1996, with the labels on the frame back. Illustrated: The Art of John Biggers: View from the Upper Room, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, p. 89, fig. 38. Kumasi Market is a significant and panoramic oil by John Biggers which epitomizes his interest in African culture. Based on Biggers' experiences in Ghana in the late 1950s, this densely painted scene displays the artist's intense observation of a large market, a busy meeting place primarily populated by women. The colors, shapes and patterns fill the scene with details of daily life that Biggers carefully recorded. It is not only a depiction of the woman's important role in Ghanaian culture, but a reflection by the artist on the universal aspects of African women. John Biggers' painting represents the importance of the African woman in her society. Biggers had said that "Africa has a female sensibility", and "the woman was so powerful in African culture." In 1957, Biggers was one of the first African-American artists to visit Africa, sponsored by a UNESCO fellowship to study and record traditional African culture. In addition to Ghana, John and his wife Hazel visited Togo, the Republic of Benin and Nigeria over a six month period. Ghana had only just achieved its independence from Britain in March of that year. Upon his return, between 1959 and 1963, Biggers created the monumental painting, Jubilee: Ghana Harvest Festival, now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and a group of these large paintings. In addition to Kumasi Market, Biggers painted Market Women, Ghana, ex-collection Golden State Mutual Life Insurance Company, and Laundry Women (Washerwomen in Volta Region), collection Diggs Gallery, Winston-Salem University. Biggers also illustrated eighty-three of his drawings from this African period in Ananse: The Web of Life in Africa published in 1962. Wardlaw p. 86 and 165.

JOHN BIGGERS (1924 - 2001) Ethiopian Women.

Description: JOHN BIGGERS (1924 - 2001) Ethiopian Women. Conte crayon on heavy wove paper, mounted to illustration board, 1969. 1476x1412 mm; 37 1/2x29 inches. Signed, titled, dated and inscribed "Best Wishes Maya" in crayon, lower right. Provenance: acquired directly from the artist; the estate of Dr. Maya Angelou. Ethiopian Women is an excellent example from the series of large drawings from the Gondor Market which Biggers drew after a six-month trip to Ethiopia and Eastern Africa in 1969. John Biggers continued to depict many different representations of women gathered in the marketplace--in crayon, charcoal and lithograph--which, according to Olive Jensen Theisen, explored the spirit of maame, the strong maternal love found in the African family. Ethiopian Women incorporates this theme in this composition--the young girl in the center is flanked by two older women-within a formal study of the light and contrasts found in the textures of the African market. Gondor Market: Ethiopian Market, 1970, in the collection of Dr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Pierce, Jr., is a, similar drawing from this period. Theisen pp. 72-73; Wardlaw p. 51.
