Tribute to early abstract expressionist Beauford Delaney.

Beauford’s original painting was “Jazz Quartet.”  James Baldwin attributed “Price of a Ticket” to his friend Beauford. Ealy Mays pays tribute by combining title with image.  Setting of Beauford’s original painting was more of a church with a woman a playing a Piano. Here, it is changed from a church to a Jazz lounge in Paris, juxtaposing the individuals and instrument played.



Paris-based painter Ealy Mays present Paris stories and narratives in art, with cultural and socio-political images of current and historical life in the city of lights, including the history of African Americans in Paris, the Spirit of black Paris, the Paris Noir experience, from the viewpoint of the black expatriate in France
