In honor of African-American artist William H. Johnson (1901-1970), this spring the U.S. Postal Services issued a stamp featuring his vibrant painting, Flowers. Johnson, who worked mainly in the first half of the twentieth century, expressed his vision of life utilizing a variety of styles. Flowers is an example of Johnson’s adaptation of the American Folk art tradition characterized by bright colors and two dimensional form.
