“James Twitty has a perfect pitch for color.
His color harmonies are never saccharine nor harsh,
but unite his strange and challenging worlds as supplement to his exquisite and evocative
combination of the known and unknown.”
- Hereward Lester Cooke
Ex-Curator/National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
1911 - 1994
