Barbara Jones was an artist who I came across during my research for my essay. Her work is very much folk inspired and very traditional. Her exhibition Black Eyes and Lemonades in 1951 brought various over looked or looked down on form of arts to the attention of the general public. These involved carnival, taxidermy and tattoo art among other things. Here are a couple of pieces of her work that I really dig.
