Publisher's Note:

Paul Keene: Post-War Explorations in Painting showcases the work of Philadelphia-based African American artist Paul Farwell Keene, Jr. (1920-2009), created during the years immediately following World War II. Keene lived in Paris, France, from 1949 to 1951, and in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, from 1952 to 1954. The paintings created during his time abroad and through the late 1950s reflect the influence of European Modernism, African art, and an emerging Afro-Caribbean aesthetic. This exhibition catalogue features three short essays, historical photographs, and images of Keene’s artworks.
