Regional Art of the Southeast

John Kelly Fitzpatrick (American, 1888–1953), Negro Baptising, 1927, oil on canvas, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Gift of the artist, 1930.23.1

The southeastern United States and Alabama have provided a wealth of examples demonstrating the varied forms that human creativity can take through art. From drawings by the self-taught painter and draftsman Bill Traylor to the evocative interpretations of the local landscape by J. Kelly Fitzpatrick, the Museum preserves and exhibits excellent examples of regional art from the 1930s to the present day. Highlights of the Museum’s collection of works include southeastern regional artists, with particular emphasis on artists from the state of Alabama.
