Clarence Holbrook Carter
Clarence Holbrook Carter is an artist of little known fame. His work contains a very strong political commentary that still brings chills to the viewer. It is believed that Carter was born around 1904, and did his hallmark painting, "White Supremacy" when he was in his fourties.
Carter's style of painting is reminiscent of the crude folk art done by slaves in the 19th century. His figures are raw and cartoon-like with very flat imaging and obvious outlining.
Carter obviously accomplished his goal in this work, to raise consciousness while creating an uncomfortable realization. He reminds people of the past, present and future with one single painting.
