Alma Woodsey Thomas (September 22, 1891 ā€“ February 24, 1978) was an African-American artist and teacher who lived and worked in Washington, D.C., and is now recognized as a major American painter of the 20th century. Thomas is best known for the “exuberant”, colorful, abstract paintings that she created after her retirement from a 35-year career teaching art at Washington’s Shaw Junior High School. (Wikipedia)

Here's a Photo of an Alma Thomas Painting in the White House ...
This is a photo of The White House in April 2015, during a Passover dinner, with Alma Thomas’ Resurrection (1966) at the head of the table. The painting was added to the White House collection February 2015 for Black History Month, and it is the first artwork in the White House by a female African American artist.
