Coretta Scott King Award-winner James E. Ransome has illustrated over sixty children’s picture books, covering a wide range of subjects. Ransome’s vivid oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings depict inspiring stories about unknown characters and historical figures alike, showcasing the beauty in lives lived both large and small.
This exhibition is organized by the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature, Abilene, Texas.
