About this title:

Synopsis: Traces the life of the Boston-born painter who lived and worked in Martha's Vineyard, Haiti, Paris, and Africa, and shows examples of her work

From Booklist: There is something sunny about nearly every watercolor, oil painting, or acrylic Los Mailou Jones has painted over the course of her long and productive life. Born in Boston in 1905, Jones was the daughter of ambitious, hardworking, and successful parents who enjoyed the niceties of black upper-class society. Jones, a beauty then and now, originally studied design, but switched to painting at Howard University, where she later taught for many years. As this volume's more than 100 color plates clearly demonstrate, Jones' painting style is influenced by her gift for design, but her diverse oeuvre is also strongly place related. Her early, Postimpressionist works include Martha's Vineyard landscapes, while her more mature paintings--striking portraits, brilliant street scenes, and sensual still lifes--are animated by a finer line and stronger contours, and reflect her travels in France and Africa and her sojourns in Haiti, where she spent part of each year with her Haitian artist husband. Benjamin, once a student of Jones', then a friend, colleague, and curator of the major traveling exhibition The World of Los Mailou Jones, covers each stage of Jones' "triumphant" life with knowledgeable enthusiasm and deep respect.
