About Louis J. Delsarte:
Louis J. Delsarte is known for what critics have referred to as his "illusionist" style. He is a painter, draftsman, muralist, printmaker, and poet. While growing up in New York City, he was surrounded by jazz, opera, musicals, and the blues. His parents were friends with Harlem Renaissance artists like Lena Horne, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Langston Hughes. These influences along with his knowledge and interest in African American history and world culture served as inspiration for his art. Delsarte has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries throughout the United States including the Studio Museum of Harlem, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the California African-American Museum, the Camille Hanks Cosby Museum at Spelman College and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
