Joe Jones

Jones was born, 1909, in a poor neighborhood in St. Louis, Missouri. His father earned money as a house painter to support the family. Although, Jones, worked with Thomas Hart Benton, he was basically self-taught as an artist. His exhibition in New York, 1935, received recognition by the poet, Archibald MacLeish. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1937, and shortly afterwards, declared his membership in the Communist Party. During the Depression, Jones, made strong social comments in his lithographs and paintings, but also brought an original and sensitive feeling in the depiction of his subject matter.
