"(Untitled) Still Life" by Albert Wells
32 x 26 inches (image size), oil painting on canvas, (1953) -- framed
Albert Wells was one of the many Morehouse men who studied painting under noted artist and teacher Hale Woodruff, the widely respected director of Atlanta University's art department. Under Woodruff's tutelage, Wells became a member of the so-called "Outhouse School," an informal guild of African American painters known for their landscapes depicting the rural scenery of Georgia.
Wells achieved a considerable amount of early success in local, regional, and national exhibitions. He exhibited work at the Exhibition of the Art of the American Negro held at Tanner Art Galleries in Chicago in conjunction with the American Negros Exposition, a two-month-long celebration of African American history and Achievement. After serving in the United States Army from 1943 to 1945, he moved to Chicago, Illinois, and remained there as a teacher in the public school system. Wells passed away in 2001.
