Horace Pippin: From War to Peace

Injured during World War I, Horace Pippin turned to painting to help mend his body and spirit. In the process, he created works of great power and poignancy and distinguished himself as one of the most original artists of his generation. This gathering of six paintings highlights Pippin’s pursuit of a range of themes, from racial violence and the alienation of war to the serene beauty of his home in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
