The final Museum of the Week for Black History Month
Unknown, Portrait of a Black Sailor, c. 1800. Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

As Black History Month draws to a close, we’re featuring the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) as the 1000Museums Museum of the Week. They are currently running a retrospective of work by Charles White, an African-American artist who focused on images of both historical and contemporary African Americans. LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with 7 buildings on a 20-acre campus. Their collection is as large as their campus, spanning nearly all geographies and time periods.

The work of art from LACMA we’re featuring is particularly appropriate for Black History Month. By an unknown artist, it’s believed to be a painting of Paul Cuffe, an American Quaker businessman, sea captain, and abolitionist. His mother was native American and his father was a slave from what is now Ghana, freed by his Quaker master.

We're pleased and honored to be able to highlight LACMA and Black History Month. 1000Museums partners like LACMA are the ones who take care of the artwork we all love, provide great spaces to view and learn about that art, and help us ensure our archival reproductions here at 1000Museums are of the highest quality. 

If you’re in the LA area, please allocate as much time as you can to look in on LACMA. Their Charles White show runs through June 9. Wherever your are, you can always check out their print selections at
