Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist
Discover how Archibald Motley’s paintings have captured worldwide attention for their rainbow-hued, syncopated compositions, and discover their genesis in Chicago’s burgeoning black community during the interwar years. These frenetic, colorful canvases of middle-class sitting rooms, glittery cabarets, shadowy pool halls, neon-lit street scenes, and illicit “Black and Tan” clubs perfectly captured the imagery and spirit of Chicago’s black district, known as Bronzeville, while also tapping into Motley’s vivid imagination.
