Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist. Featuring more than 140 colour illustrations, this catalogue accompanies the first full-scale survey in 20 years of the work of Archibald John Motley, Jr. (1891-1981), a master colourist and radical interpreter of urban culture. Motley’s brilliant yet idiosyncratic paintings – simultaneously expressionist and social realist – have captured worldwide attention with their rainbow-hued, syncopated compositions. The catalogue includes the artist’s depictions of African American life in early-twentieth-century Chicago, as well as his portraits and archetypes, portrayals of African American life in Jazz Age Paris, and renderings of 1950s Mexico.

These books are on display on the 2nd floor of Llandaff library during April. If you would like to reserve any item, please follow the links to the library catalogue.
