#BillTraylor. Untitled (Black Fish), ca. 1939-42. Colored pencil on found cardboard. 10 x 8 in. (25.4 x 20.3 cm.) [PRIVATE COLLECTION]
This work is illustrated in RiccoMaresca’s book “Bill Traylor: His Art, His Life” (Alfred A. Knopf, 1991) and included in the gallery’s OustiderArtFair Paris online viewing room | Link in profile 
Although emancipated as a boy, Bill Traylor (1854-1949) continued to labor until 1908 on a neighboring plantation in Benton, Alabama—near where he was born into slavery.
By 1910 he was a tenant farmer near Montgomery and it was only when he was in his eighties, and no longer able to do physical work, that he started making art with materials that lay to hand, learning to write his name so he could sign his work. From 1939 to 1942, Traylor produced more than 1,200 drawings that are of crucial significance in American art and social history.
Traylor’s posthumous recognition has expanded steadily ever since his death in 1949, and today his work is in important private and museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, the High Museum of Art (Atlanta), and the Smithsonian Museum (Washington D.C.).
