today was feeling extra monday-ish...until I came across an envelope in the back of one of my favorite books as I was preparing a lesson for my students—in it was a four leaf clover my son had given me in may 2013 💚

Bill Traylor (1853-1949) was such an incredible artist. His innate ability to translate scenes from his daily life into abstracted compositions never ceases to blow me away. This drawing in found cardboard is part of the Smithsonian Museum's permanent collection. #billtraylor

Seeing the work of one of my favourite artists is like running into an old friend. Bill Traylor was born into slavery in Alabama, and was 12 when it was abolished. He didn't start making art until he was well into his 80's. His output was phenomenal and brilliant. With @artistarcade

Outsider art gallery owner Carl Hammer, displaying the back of a Bill Traylor drawing. Traylor was a former slave born in 1854 who didn't start making drawings until 1939 when he was 85. He made work on material like the back of this Baby Ruth candy bar box in the 1940's. #billtraylor #carlhammergallery #outsiderart

Traylor (ca. 1854-1949), born a slave, created his own extraordinary history of drawing in more than 1,200 images that brought to life a world of chicken stealing, hunting, plowing, preaching, drinking, arguing and testifying, as well as many vivid representations of the animal world. His technique developed rapidly; from the use of simple geometric shapes to complex abstract constructions peopled with multiple tiny figures in motion.
During the 1940s, visitors of Montgomery AL would have been treated to a startling sight: in a chair, next to a Coca Cola cooler sat a massive, dignified old man with a drawing board across his lap; he never stopped drawing. The mere three years when Traylor produced his entire opus toward the end of his life, were a key window in the history of American art.
Most of Traylor’s work was preserved by Charles Shannon (his white patron and friend). After Traylor’s death, Shannon began a prolonged effort to bring his work to the public. Today his works are regarded as one the major triumphs of Self-Taught art. He is featured in numerous publications and his work is in various private and museum collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum American Art, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and the High Museum of Art.

Finalizamos nuestro paso por la exhibición de #BlueBlack y el @pulitzerarts con obras de algunos de los artistas más renombrados del arte moderno. 1. "El Laso" de Joan Miró (1927), es una obra al óleo creado bajo la técnica del automatismo (trabajar bajo la espontaneidad y el efecto del inconsciente). "Miró más allá de lo abstracto, se basaba en el simbolismo, para él los colores y las formas tenían un significado y conexión con la realidad". 2. Liz #4 (1963) Andy Warhol. Quizás una de las pocas ocasiones en las que se verá a un #warhol colocado entre tantas obras de arte. Las demás obras son de autoría de los siguientes artistas: #CecileBrown #BillTraylor #lyleashtonharris con su obra "Blue Billie" y Viviane Sassen con algunas imágenes de su serie #Parasomnia. Esperamos hayan disfrutado de esta exhibición y ¡no se olviden de comentar o preguntarnos acerca de cualquier duda que puedan tener! #art #stlouis #pulitzer #blue #black #azul #travel #artjunkie #miró #artlovers #vivianesassen #liztaylor #museums #arteducation

Bill Traylor’s talent surfaced suddenly in 1939 when he was 85 and had 10 years to live. By then he had left the plantation in southern Alabama where he had been born a slave in 1854, and, after Emancipation, scratched out a living as a sharecropper. He moved to Montgomery, the state capital, where he slept on a pallet in the back room of a funeral parlor and spent his days sitting on a wood box watching the world go by on Monroe Street, the center of the city’s lively black district. One day Traylor picked up a stub of pencil and a scrap of cardboard and began to draw. Over the next three or four years, alternating between memories of sharecropping and what he saw before him, he produced hundreds of drawings and paintings that rank among the greatest works of the 20th century. Traylor was a natural stylist and a born storyteller who pushed images of the life around him toward abstraction with no loss of vivacity. At once modern and archaic, his art offers proof of Jung’s collective unconscious but also of an indelible individual talent. - Roberta Smith
