“Loose on the Currah”
Madonna of the Streets
USA 1950s Oil on canvas 24x48 + frame
It takes a moment to realize the meaning of this painting which is actually not titled. Note the faint halo around the child. The mother and boy appear to have been based on ”She is a Tree of Life to them:”(1950), a photograph by Consuelo Kanaga (1894-1978) that was reproduced in The Family of Man (1955).
It was exhibited at the Massillon Museum in Ohio March-May 2014. It is from the estate of a wealthy Afro-American woman who was active in the Harlem Renaissance (to 1950). We have a ceramic sculpture from the same collection and by the same artist (signed Robt. Reid). It is likely not by the Ab Ex painter of the same name. See sculpture by same artist
