Review:
"Li'l Sis" is the six-year-old narrator of the life of the great painter William H. Johnson (1901-1970). African-American born, Johnson removed to Paris, married a Dane, and painted voluminously, with whimsy, humor, sadness, and profound political dedication. His striking portraits are warm or loving. His color is loud, stunning, original. The variety of his styles is remarkable.
