The Great American Fact’ expands Sherald’s effort to, as the artist states, ‘paint the things I wish to see’ by depicting Black Americans in scenes of leisure and centered in stillness. With these new group portraits and paintings of individuals, Sherald builds upon techniques she employed in her iconic portraits of former First Lady Michelle Obama and Breonna Taylor for Vanity Fair. Through her distinctive use of portraiture and by challenging accepted notions of American identity, Sherald attempts to restore a broader, fuller picture of humanity.
