When I first entered the doors of the Van Vechten art gallery there was a piece of African art that really inspired me From this piece I assumed that the rest of the art gallery was filled with African art As I started to make my way around the museum and observe the different artwork I noticed that the majority were painted by white artist As I looked around there were two pieces by Theophile-Alexandre Stein that stood out against the other artwork One painting was entitled The Lefant Malade It was a picture of a man and a woman and their child The man is sitting down in a chair with his head down in his hand as if he has disappointed his wife and child The wife is on the bed daydreaming and the baby has a sad look on his face My interpretation of this painting is that the man has lost his job or the family doesnt have any money Now they are concerned about how they are going to feed the baby and that is why everyone is looking melancholy The next painting which is called Misere It is a woman holding as baby and she has a depressed look on her face I like these two paintings because they show struggle By far the most interesting thing about the gallery is that African Culture inspired most of the artists in their paintings The Van Vechten gallery is full of artwork by both black and white artists inspired by African culture
