Archibald Motley, Jr's "Nightlife"

From our first class session, here's a re-visit to the painting about which you wrote. If you would like to revise your poem as an exercise, you might consider what you can learn about the painting from the Art Institute of Chicago's page on Motley. Or you might compare this work to other paintings from the artist or to work of other Harlem Renaissance artists. If you are happy with a draft from this exercise, send it to me and I'll post some selections here on the course blog.
