Bill Traylor: his art, his life
A former slave who began drawing at the age of 85, Bill Traylor created over 1,500 silhouette-like drawings of plants, animals, people, and abstract forms. Sophisticated and naive, whimsical and sinister, these works offer us a stunning vision of Traylor's unique genius. 144 illustrations.
