The Renowned African-American Art Collector Paul R. Jones

Renowned African-American Fine Art Collector Paul Jones passed away on January 26, 2010. He will be remember as a pioneer in the collecting of black art. He had one of the largest collections of African-American art in the world. A majority of his collection is housed at the University of Delaware. I had the opportunity to fellowship, and chat with Paul Jones on several occasions, and he was always filled with wisdom about the importance of collecting art for future generations. I would send him e-mails about events we would host, and he would always answer back with a positive note. He told Stacey and I how proud he was of the job we were doing getting the word out about black art. He invited Stacey and I to his home to view his collection, but we never made it by. I know he is telling the angels about his collection, and how much he loved art.
