> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition will include approximately 63 drawings and paintings by self-taught Alabama artist Bill Traylor. Traylor began making art near the end of his life, and his works are notable for their flat, simply defined shapes and vibrant compositions in which memories and observations relating to African American life are merged. Traylor is recognized as one of the finest American artists of the 20th century.

“Bill Traylor: Drawings from the Collections of the High Museum of Art and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts” is co-organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery. The exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The presentation at the American Folk Art Museum is sponsored in part by Joyce Berger Cowin, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Ford Foundation, the Robert Lehman Foundation, the David Davies and Jack Weeden Fund for Exhibitions, and Laura and Richard Parsons. Lectures and symposia are supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
