Jo Jones

American, 1909 – 1963

Oil on canvas, 29½ x 39½ inches


Collection of Bermuda National Gallery. Gift of David L. White, OBE.

Joe Jones was an important 20th century American painter and printmaker who was almost entirely self-taught; he wintered in Bermuda in the 1950s and was instrumental in the development of Bermudian artist Alfred Birdsey’s loose style of painting.  His silk-screens from the post war era, such as this original example, are now seen as technical masterworks of their time. In 1937, Jones was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship.
