A Visual Hollingsworth

Can't get enough information about William Hollingsworth? Want to see some of his lyrical creations? Well look no further! (Perhaps look a bit further!)

Brown and Wet:

In the Alley:

Ah, The Mystery of a Southern Night:

The $31,725 painting, It Was Cloudy When Evalina Married:

I'll throw in one last Hollingsworth nugget as the frosting on the cake (or the oil on the canvas). Hollingsworth suffered some doubts as to whether he could become a successful artist practicing his vocation in his native state. Karl Wolfe, a good friend who was also a Jackson artist, gave Hollingsworth the following advice: "Why, Hollie, you don't have to go to New York or Chicago. You can paint out the window" (Welty 29). Hollingsworth continued to "paint out the window" by creating local scenes of Mississippi and portraits of Mississippians until his untimely death.
