The paintings of Archibald Motley, Jr. chronicle the experience of Black Chicagoans from the 1920s into the 1940s and beyond. Considered a part of the Chicago Black Renaissance, Motley’s work also pays homage to the age of jazz. Despite early successes, Motley struggled to find his focus as a Black artist, spent time painting shower curtains, but survived to receive White House honors and a doctorate from the Art Institute of Chicago. The sound of jazz is alive in the work of Archibald Motley. Features: Large blocks for notes | Beautiful reproduction | Quality heavy-weight paper | Deluxe 11 by 14 inch size
