Resounding Heart Portfolio


Hand Graphics is proud to offer the Resounding Heart Portfolio . A collection of eight original lithographs by eight important African American artists, including: John Biggers, Robert Colescott, Artis Lane, Ron Adams, Tarleton Blackwell, John Scott, Renee Stout and Lionel Lofton

The Resounding Heart Portfolio is a documentation of the historical and evolutionary journey of the Black experience. Just as Jazz is, the Resounding Heart Portfolio is an artifact of the unique black lived experience. Each piece speaks its own language but the portfolio as a whole reflects the individual experience told by Blacks about the collective black experience. This visual, rather than the more traditional verbal dialogue, supports, transports and energizes the understanding of Black Culture.


These eight lithographs were pulled by hand on archival papers, 30” x 22” , and are contained in a handsome linen-covered portfolio. This beautiful and compelling collection of pre-eminent and history-making African American artists should be included in any serious collection of American Art, African American Art or Black History. 

Maya Angelou wrote of John Biggers, The Art of John Biggers, View From the Upper Room(Abrams/The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston,Texas), “Biggers sees our differences and celebrates them, and in doing so he allows the clans of the world to come together with deliberate respect and respectful appreciation.”

We offer this portfolio for your respectful appreciation.

The current price for the portfolio is $ 7,000.00.
