Inventory Number:
2008.0006.0001
Description:
Freeman's bold figurative painting, "Love Letters III," depicting three African-American women, is a prime example of his powerful style. Using deep swatches of color and broad brush strokes, the ladies become nearly abstract as they gaze outward.
Robert Freeman (1946-) is known for his vivid figurative paintings depicting well-to-do African-Americans at sophisticated gatherings. With expressive faces and body language, Freeman reveals the deep emotion of his characters even within crowds. Freeman's unique use of color and gesture render his figures nearly abstract. Based in Boston, Freeman has exhibited extensively in the Northeast, including at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the University of New England.

Notes:
Title provided by EEPA staff
Between October 1935 and May 1936, a brief colonial war was fought between the Ethiopian Empire (also known as Abyssinia) and the Kingdom of Italy. This conflict would become known as the Second Italo-Abyssinian War (or the Second Italo-Ethiopian War). Italy sought to avenge its losses in the First Italo-Abyssinian War and to unify Italian-held Eritrea and Italian Somaliland by acquiring Ethiopia. The war resulted in the military occupation of Ethiopia and its annexation into the newly created colony of Italian East Africa (Africa Orientale Italiana, or AOI). Although Emperor Haile Selassie I was forced into exile in England, Ethiopia never capitulated or surrendered, and the country was eventually liberated in 1941 by the Allied Forces
Summary:
This album contains postcards of religious sites and cultural/natural landscapes in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The postcards provide historical views of the city and names of churches and official buildings. The album binding was handmade by an Italian military official during the Ethiopian campaign in 1935-1936 and has a beautifully painted cover with the title Addis Abeba in Italian and Amharic, as well as an Italian coat of arms and official seal
