Nannies on the Battery
George Biddle's reputation in the art of the South was established in 1930, when he was invited by George Gershwin to produce illustrations for the printed libretto of his widely popular opera, Porgy and Bess. The invitation resulted in a trip to Charleston, SC, during which time Biddle produced a suite of images portraying the city’s working African Americans. Like the paintings of his contemporary, Thomas Hart Benton, George Biddle's Nannies on the Battery delivers Regionalist subject matter with a colorful palette and expressionistic approach.
