Horace Pippin

Horace Pippin (1888-1946) was a self-taught painter who was heavily influenced by the injustice African Americans faced, such as slavery and segregation. Born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Pippin grew up in Goshen, New York where his interest in visual art began at a young age, all beginning with his first box of crayons and set of watercolors won through an art supply company’s advertisement contest. When older, he served in World War I with the famous Harlem Hellfighters. Despite being at war, he still maintained an illustrated journal to document his experiences to maintain his artistic outlet.
