#BillTraylor . Untitled (Man in Black and Blue with Cigar and Suitcase), ca. 1939-42. Poster paint on found cardboard. 21 1/2” x 16”.
[Collection of Jerry and Susan Lauren]
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 Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum American Art, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and the High Museum of Art.

Who is ready to kick off the week with a good start! Everyone dreads Monday’s but it’s a start to a great week where you can make goals and be more productive than you were last week. It’s all about the way you view things. If you already think it’s going to be a horrible week, it will. If you think the opposite and go into the week positive and productive, you will have a great week. A reason why people dread the start of a new week is because they aren’t happy with what they are doing in life. Make it a goal to stay positive in what you do in life. Get up in the morning, make your bed, and drink your coffee 😝 if you’re not happy with your life, change it. Little steps to get yourself to where you really want to be. Don’t wait to make it happen. Just do it 🙌🏼

When you're content within yourself, you can be happy for others. Because, their blessings don't affect yours whatsoever
Chase the things that are meant for You. Paths may cross and experiences may be similar. BUT, Your journey will never be the same as the person you're looking up to hating on or admiring 💁🏾♀️ - MsFitQueenUK ♥️
När man ligger hemma med huvudvärk som vägrar släppa och inte kan gå till gymmet är det bra att det finns filmer att titta på som kan motivera en till fortsatt träning. 😈👍 #netflix#huvudvärk#motivation 💪
