The South in Black and White

The South in Black and White
Born in New Orleans in 1918 and raised in Atlanta, James E. Routh Jr. enrolled in the Arts Students League in New York in 1936, where he studied painting with Raphael Soyer, printmaking with Harry Sternberg, and lithography as an assistant to the League?s master printer, Will Barnet. Routh?s career as a printmaker culminated in a year-long trip through his native South, which he documented in sketches and, later, in paintings and prints. The fall 2009 exhibition was organized by GMOA in collaboration with the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The companion catalogue includes eighteen color and black-and-white reproductions of Routh?s prints, an essay by curator Stephen J. Goldfarb, and a checklist of the exhibition.
