(December 1886 – January 1, 1988)

Clementine Hunter is an American folk artist, born in 1886 on a plantation in Lousiana. Though she never learned to read or write, Hunter taught herself to paint using materials left by an artist at her plantation. Her art depicts scenes from her community in the Cane River Valley and shows
the lives of the Black sharecroppers and tenant farmers that lived there. She painted on canvases but also used found objects such as glass bottles. Hunter didn’t receive public recognition until 20 years after she started exhibiting paintings when the Museum of America Folk Art in New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and was the first African-American artist to have a solo exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
