The distinctive images in coloured pencil on paper created by Frank Jones (1900-1969) have earned this African American self-taught artist, who grew up in poor, northeastern Texas, near the border with Oklahoma, a solid place in outsider art’s canon. So, too, has his life story, for Jones produced his remarkable drawings, only several hundred of which are known to exist today, during the latter years of his life, while he was an inmate at the state penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas, north of Houston.
