Other major sources were Henry Dreyfuss Symbol Sourcebook,LeonardoDaVinci’snotebooks, and BrentjesAfrican Rock Art. • Basquiatdoodled often and some of his later pieces exhibited this; they were often colored pencil on paper with a loose, spontaneous, and dirty style much like his paintings. • His work displays a child-like fascination with the process of creating

Many Mansions is the first in Kerry James Marshall’s series of five large-scale paintings depicting public housing projects in Chicago and Los Angeles such as Rockwell Gardens, Wentworth Gardens, or, as in Many Mansions, StatewayGardens • Struck by the absurdity of the term “garden” to describe these failed solutions to low-income housing, Marshall was inspired to represent the profound contradictions of living in such an environment

  40. Many Mansions is filled with ironic and startling juxtapositions of the real and artificial—from the unnaturally cheerful landscape to the three haunting, ebony-skinned figures dressed in nostalgic Sunday best • From the bible: “In my Father’s house there are many mansions.” John 14:2
