Our Guest of Honor:
Monique Wells Co- Founder Of "Discover Paris"
Longtime Paris Expat
Monique Y. Wells will present the life and art of Beauford Delaney, an extraordinary painter who was part of the post-WWII African-American expatriate presence in Paris. His works are becoming recognized as some of the best that 20th-century American artists have produced, particularly because of his use of color in the abstract expressionist paintings of his Paris years. Some of his closest friends here included writers James Baldwin and Richard Gibson, and artist Ed Clark. He crossed paths with some of the most famous African-American expats of the era, including Richard Wright and Chester Himes.
Delaney did not want his paintings to be categorized as black art, or even as American art. He died in Paris in 1979 and is buried in Thiais Cemetery in an unmarked grave. Monique is president of Les Amis de Beauford Delaney, a non-profit group that seeks to honor him.
