We’ve got love on the brain. – Rihanna

Still Life with Wedding Portrait, Kerry James Marshall.

We think of Harriet Tubman as a scrappy fighter and indomitable heroine. Here, the artist chooses to focus on other elements of her humanity. As one reviewer wrote: “The bow on Tubman’s crisp white blouse is tied just so and the pink of her cuff complements the pink flower accenting her hair. Meanwhile, her husband rests his hands tenderly on her shoulders. She is feminine and loved, yet her wisdom and strength remains evident in her confident gaze.”
