Set of Four Postcards, German Man from Ellis Island

7.00

For the past couple of years I have been drawing pictures inspired by old black and white photos taken on Ellis Island in the early 20th century. 

I find it particularly fascinating/ disturbing/ sad how many of the ethnic traditions of different peoples were swept away or discouraged in the name of becoming "white" or more "American". So much history and tradition was lost. 

In light of our current political climate, I want people to remember that all Americans that are not of Native American descent or African descent, came here as immigrants and refugees. They have made our country what it is today.
