FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Artist Elizabeth Colomba: Reclaiming a place in history for women of colour • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.
Our guest is known for her classical paintings of beautiful Black women from another era. Not servants, or slaves, nor fetishized or exoticised, her opulent portraits are redefining the women of colour in art history. With her latest work, “Queenie, the godmother of Harlem”, the French-born, New York-based artist Elizabeth Colomba continues to rediscover and represent Black people erased by history. The book retraces the life of Martinican Mafia boss Stéphanie St. Clair in 1930s Harlem.
