When the museum purchased “The Annunciation” in 1899, it was the first work by an African American artist purchased by a major museum in the United States. Now, over 200 years of collecting later, we’ve got an amazing collection we’re happy to show off in the upcoming exhibition “Represent: 200 Years of African American Art.”: http://ow.ly/GbEB6
