Biography Felton Coleman
Felton E. Coleman (1911-2002) worked as a janitor for the art
department of Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge from at least
1940 through 1948. During that time he developed a career as an artist,
culminating with a one-man show at the Carl Ashby Gallery in New York in
1949. Coleman's work was discussed in at least two reviews: Elaine de
Kooning, "Reviews and Previews: Felton Coleman," Art News 48 (April
1949), page 55; and Jo Gibbs, "Louisiana Primitive," Arts Magazine 23
(15 March 1949), page 15, where he was described as "a new Negro
primitive with a certain freshness of vision and honesty of approach."
Coleman''s art career seems to have ended after his New York debut,
