Celebrating Five Years of the Les Amis Blog!

It's been five years since I began this blog to write about Beauford's life and art and to raise the funds for a tombstone to be laid at his gravesite in Thiais cemetery. Time has flown by!

Portrait of Beauford Delaney
1953 Carl Van Vechten

I want to thank each and every person who has supported Les Amis de Beauford Delaney over the years and encourage you to continue to stay connected as we prepare for the mounting of two plaques in "Beauford's Paris" in 2015.

To celebrate, I'm republishing images of some of my favorite Beauford Delaney paintings.
