Join Loren Schoenberg, Senior Scholar at The National Jazz Museum in Harlem, for a look at Duke Ellington, the portraitist.
As a young man, Ellington received a scholarship to Pratt Institute to study art, but decided instead to pursue music. What followed were musical portraits of some of the leading African-American artists of the 20th century. Loren Schoenberg will match Ellington’s notes with work by painters such as Jacob Lawrence, Aaron Douglas, and Romare Bearden.
