Virtual Tour: Artist-Reporter Allan Rohan Crite

Presented by Boston Athenæum at Boston Athenæum

Join Boston Athenæum Docent Phoebe Morse for an introduction to the life and work of Allan Rohan Crite. The tour will discuss how Crite's use of vivid colors, painterly lines, and attention on recognizable places and people create dynamic views of everyday life. Explore several of Crite's paintings and drawings to discover how his images of his neighbors in Boston's predominantly Black South End and Roxbury neighborhoods in the 1930s and 1940s earned him national recognition and a reputation as an astute biographer.
