Black History Month

William Sidney Mount - The Banjo Player (1856)October is Black History Month in the UK. So Coxsoft Art has reinstalled its page of historic paintings featuring black people and has added two more: Frans Hals' Family Group in a Landscape (1648) and Francois Auguste Biard's The Slave Trade (1840). These additions were painted nearly two centuries apart. Click the title link to view the appalling contrast between them.
