Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller (/mtə ˈv/ MEE-tə VOW; born Meta Vaux Warrick; June 9, 1877 – March 13, 1968[lower-alpha 1]) was an African-American artist who celebrated Afrocentric themes. At the fore of the Harlem Renaissance, Warrick was known for being a poet, painter, theater designer, and sculptor of the black American experience. At the turn of the 20th century, she achieved a reputation as the first black woman sculptor and was a well-known sculptor in Paris before returning to the United States.[1] Warrick was a protégée of Auguste Rodin, and has been described as "one of the most imaginative Black artists of her generation."[2] Through adopting a horror-based figural style and choosing to depict events of racial injustice, like the lynching of Mary Turner, Warrick used her platform to address the societal traumas of African Americans.[3]
