35. Löis Mailou Jones in the World

  • Cheryl Finley (author)
Cheryl Finley’s ‘Löis Mailou Jones in the World’ examines the work, life and influence of Löis Mailou Jones as they relate to the themes of travel and migration – both literally and figuratively. As an artist and designer, Jones practiced, taught and utilised theories of travel and migration, most notably in her Art-Deco-era textile designs inspired by Art Nouveau and Chinoiseries, and the paintings from her Africa Series (1950s-1980s) inspired by her travels to Haiti in the 1950s and Africa in the 1960s and 1970s.
