Illustrated: Gail Gelburd, A Blossoming of New Promises: Art in the Spirit of the Harlem Renaissance, Hofstra University, 1984, fig. 24; Harriet McNamee, Loïs Mailou Jones: Imagining Africa, Women in the Arts, The National Museum of Women In the Arts, Washington, DC, spring 2002, p. 7. This striking image by Loïs Mailou Jones is the most significant oil painting by the artist yet to come to auction - a very scarce example from her Harlem Renaissance period. This painting is one of the earliest known examples of the artist's investigation of African imagery for an African-American aesthetic. Inspired by Aaron Douglas and the New Negro philosophy of Alain Locke, in 1933 Jones exhibited at the Harmon Foundation in New York her oil painting, The Ascent of Ethiopia, 1932, now in the collection of the Milwaukee Art Museum. By the summer of 1934, her interest in African art peaked. She pursued a study of ethnic masks at Columbia University. In Harlem, she met Asadata Dafora, the dancer and choreographer from Sierra Leone, and soon designed head dresses and costumes for his ground breaking operatic dance Kykunkor (Witch Woman). Awarded a Howard University scholarship to study at the Académie Julian in Paris during 1937-38, she studied landscape and portraiture, and painted her well known painting of African masks, Les Fétiches, 1938, now in the collection of the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution. Benjamin p. 125; Hanzal pp. 57-58 and 135.

LOÏS MAILOU JONES (1905 - 1998) Lobsterville Beach. Oil on linen canvas, 1945. 660x813 mm; 26x32 inches. Signed and dated in oil, lower right recto. Signed and inscribed "Howard University, Washington, DC" in ink, and titled in chalk on the upper stretcher bar, verso. Provenance: private collection, MD. This impressive Impressionist canvas is one of the largest landscapes by Loïs Mailou Jones we have located of a Martha's Vineyard subject. This bustling beach scene is from the two mile long Lobsterville Beach found at the western end of the island above Aquinnah (formerly Gay Head). In the early 1940s, Jones had already begun a successful career as a painter with her inclusion in exhibitions at the Phillips Collection, the National Academy of Design, the Barnett-Aden Gallery in Washington, DC, and the Institute of Modern Art in Boston. In 1945, Jones received a BA degree in art education, magna cum laude, from Howard University. Earlier in 1941, she painted another local beach scene Indian Shops, Gay Head, Massachusetts, 1940. Now in the collection of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the painting received the Robert Woods Bliss Award for Landscape from the The Society of Washington Artists at the Corcoran Gallery. Benjamin pp. 49-50.
