Bill Traylor

Family Inc.

A prolific, self-taught artist, Bill Traylor was born in 1856 and began creating art at the age of 85.  At least 1,500 original works of art were known to exist by the time the artist passed in 1949. 

"Bring me," he says, "deep reds, and deep browns, and deep blues...and  plenty of deep, deep black." 
Traylor quoted in "Rankin File" by Allen Rankin for the Alabama Journal, 31 March 1948
