Eliot Bostwick Davis, John Moors Cabot Chair, Art of the Americas, curator of “Loïs Mailou Jones”
Edmund Barry Gaither, director, Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists
Boston artist Loïs Mailou Jones’s spirited, richly patterned, and brilliantly colored style influenced many during the Harlem Renaissance and beyond. In a conversation with Elliot Davis, Edmund Barry Gaither reflects on his long friendship with Jones, and her pioneering role as a 20th-century black woman artist and teacher. Davis expands the discussion to the artist’s place in the broader context of American art.
