It's your blog so you do as you please. However it is my opinion that criticising a man based on work you refuse to post is not only biased but very unfair. If he was a racist he was not alone during this period of time. Most of the depiction's of African Americans were racist caricatures and there were many artists that produced commercial work that we cringe to see today. That does not however invalidate their entire portfolio. If you contend his work is boring and has little value you should post a broad selection of his best pieces and let your readers judge if you are correct.
