Issue 12, Spring 1956
Jean Jones is a former New York fashion model with no formal art training, but with a solid and growing reputation for her paintings as well as for her drawings. She is by nature a voyager and has spent winters on sailboats off the Florida coast, summers in suburban Westport, and years in a water-front section of Brooklyn. But no matter where she works, she sees her subjects with the same delicate, sometimes zany, humor and draws them with the sure fineness which is especially her own. The result is a delightful collection of work which has the importance of complete individuality, a quality New York’s Metropolitan Museum recognized last year in buying one of her oils.
