Version II of the classic piece which now part of Larry and Brenda Thompson’s Collection of African American Art: Tradition Re-defined – at the David C. Driskell Center For The Study of The Visual Arts and Culture of African Americans And the African Diaspora, at the University of Maryland College Park.

The “Last Vernissage” features prominently among the works of great artists such as, Beauford Delaney, Radcliffe Bailey, Romare Bearden, Ernest Chrichlow, Humbert Howard, Louis Mailou-Jones, Henry O. Tanner, and many others.

Reprising the French classic movie, "Le Dernier Metro", this piece depicts a black male sweeping the floor of an upscale Parisian art gallery after an opening (‘vernissage’). The crowd is gone. Someone must clean up the stains of spilt wine and champagne on the floor. Without resources, the artist cleans up after the show.


Paris based contemporary artist Ealy Mays' online art gallery presents a beautiful selection of figurative paintings, narratives, mixed media, top quality abstract paintings, and premium canvas prints & posters
