Mammy Artwork Online
Art inhibited by politically correctness becomes propaganda born out of censorship. The artist is a social commentator, often the most astute and honest observer and critic of the popular culture.
Andy Warhol took Mammy to another level three decades ago when he gave us pieces such as "Mammy with Diamond Dust." Numerous artists have also produced images of Mammy in both paintings and sculptures. Different take on the objectified image today held in derision: Tribute to the black woman and the complex role of the single most integral individual to the evolution of America - from slaves, maids, servants, nannies. Once upon a time in America, everyone had a Mammy.
Mammy was not the simple character as she is often portrayed. She evolved into future leaders in science, entertainment, business, sports, the arts, and politics, and she produced successive future generation of leaders who became schoolteachers, educators, businesswomen, CEOs, attorneys, judges, doctors, scientist, intellectuals – writers, poets, and visual artists, police brass, and entertainers.
