In another magazine…
After Beyonce broke the internet with her VOGUE September 2018 cover, her mother Tina Knowles Lawson is serving up a few tidbits about her art collection in Vanity Fair.
Both of her daughters, Beyonce & Solange, are big art lovers. And now we know why. Their mother is obsessed with black art and she made sure to introduce them to it at an early age growing up in Houston.
“When my kids were growing up, it was really important to me that they saw images of African-Americans,” Tina said. “I’m so happy that I did, because both of them are really aware of their culture, and I think a lot of that had to do with looking at those images every day, those strong images.”
Tina, above in her living room with Kimberly Drew, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s social-media manager, has an extraordinary collection that includes works by artists ranging from Elizabeth Catlett, Romare Bearden, and Henry Ossawa Tanner—the turn-of-the-century African-American ex-pat who garnered huge success after moving to Paris—to more contemporary works by Toyin Ojih Odutola, Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle, and Lawson’s own niece Dominique Beyoncé.
“I love collecting and knowing the history of the artist,” says Lawson, who has always seen her relationship to art as more spiritual than material. In front of a painting by Kermit Oliver, she delivers an impromptu trivia session on the Texan mixed-media artist: he’s the only American in history who designed scarves for Hermès, yet he nevertheless chose to work as a mail sorter at a Waco post office. “It kept him normal,” she explained.
