Jazz Age Illustration

Jazz Age Illustration is the first major exhibition to survey the art of popular illustration in the United States between 1919 and 1942. This ambitious project draws from DelArt’s expansive illustration collection, with selective loans, to explore the mass visual culture that emerged at the end of the First World War—a period characterized by cultural vibrancy and dramatic social change. Jazz Age Illustration will include more than 100 works of art and dozens of publications by prominent artists, such as Aaron Douglas, John Held Jr., Neysa McMein, and Frank Schoonover.
