This catalog details the life and work of Bill Traylor. Born in the mid 19th Century in Benton, Alabama, Traylor did not start creating artworks until near the end of his life. Widely regarded as one of the most celebrated self-taught artists, Traylor's works are characteristically flat featuring vibrant compositions which reflect upon the African American experience.
This catalog was published collectively with the American Folk Art Museum for the current "Between Worlds: The Art of Bill Traylor" exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC, on display until March 17th, 2019.
