Bill Traylor

American, 1854 - 1947
Bill Traylor is one of the most celebrated outsider artists, whose unselfconscious and expressive drawings were all done during his eighties, over a span of 5 years. He was discovered by artist Charles Shannon in Montgomery, Alabama in 1939, drawing with a pencil stub and straight-edged stick on discarded shirt cardboard. The 1982 exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art entitled “Black Folk Art in America” brought Traylor to national attention as a major artist and visual storyteller.
