LOÏS MAILOU JONES

Born in Boston in 1905 and trained at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Loïs Mailou Jones began her career at a time when racial prejudices and gender discrimination were strong in American culture. Jones received recognition in her lifetime through exhibitions and representation in important museum collections and her work remains a substantial and remarkable contribution to the world of American art.
