Archibald J. Motley Jr. (1891–1981) devoted his prodigious and critically acclaimed career to portraying African Americans seriously rather than as caricatures, hoping that honest African American art would become accepted and a subsequent synthesis would occur, creating an American art form appreciated by all, regardless of racial identity.

Drawing on the artist’s paintings and eloquent writings; recently unearthed taped interviews; unpublished paintings and sketches; and her own interviews, research, and firsthand analysis, Amy M. Mooney examines Motley’s work from the 1920s through the 1940s and discusses his significant contributions to the American art scene. Color images reveal the breadth of Motley’s subject matter, from early portraiture to café society to genre scenes.

For many years artists have depicted the Negro as the ignorant southern "darky," to be portrayed on canvas as something humorous; . . . In my paintings I have tried to paint the Negro as I have seen him and as I feel him, in myself without adding or detracting, just being frankly honest. —Archibald J. Motley Jr.

About the Author Amy M. Mooney received a doctorate from Rutgers University, in American Art History with specialization in African American art. Currently Professor of Art History and Critical Theory at Columbia College in Chicago, she has published many articles, including "Representing Race: Disjunctures in the Work of Archibald J. Motley, Jr.," in African Americans in Art (The Art Institute of Chicago and University of Washington Press, 1999).

I saw this artist for the first time at Chicago Cultural Center. I was really surprised I'd never heard of him or seen his work before and fell in love with his style and the mood his work elicits. I bought this as a gift for a neighbor of mine who I knew would also love his work and sure enough - she peeled with delight and read it cover to cover the first day. The cover shows one of his more stylized pieces, but he does very realistic works as well. He has a portrait of (I believe) his grandmother that reminds me somehow of Andrew Wyeth. Great book and if you can ever see his actual artwork, take the opportunity to do so.

Great book for the money. I haven't seen anything like it for other Black American artists. Anything else for a similar artist from the same time and place is twice the money. This is a really good place to start!
Kabei
Wonderful book. Pictures are large (full page) and do the actual canvases justice (recently had an exhibition here in Chicago of Motley's paintings).
A nice collectible. Great seller/transaction.
Ranicengi
Great book.

This is a good book, except that some of the paintings reproductions are too dark and too intensely inked. A lot of photo editors these days think that they can improve a painting by bumping the color and getting lots of deep blacks in there.

This is the only artist that has made me stop cold in my tracks while walking through any museum. Despite the limitations of printing and coffee table books, this gives wonderful insight into one of the best jazz-age artists. The vibrant use of colour, the exageration of human form blend beautifully with the composition so well, that you can almost 'taste' the scene and smell the atmosphere. It's incredible. If nothing else, it may inspire you to go to the Art Institute of Chicago to see the original face to face.
