The radical American painter Joe Jones lived from 1909
to 1963 and worked amid the poverty of the Great Depression. His vibrant paintings achieved national acclaim in the 1930s
and showcase the American struggle—urban and rural, black and white, rich and poor.

Organized by the Saint Louis Art Museum.
