Modern Madonna by Emmett Ardie Williams also known as Madonna Moderne, painted 1997 part of Solo Exhibition “Emmett Ardie Williams Cubist & Art Deco Fusions”. My exhibition was going to open during the Van Gogh Show, so it was gonna be hard to get any press as my Gallery was new in the area. Shocking to me…Jazz club owners started buying my religious paintings and I had none left to exhibit and only had time to paint one more. So this is what I came up with to compete with for coverage, which eventually I did make a fan with one reporter/paper. Also my Mom was going to travel to see the show in Bethesda, MD at The Record Gallery of Bethesda. She had always commissioned religious works from me. She said had never seen a Black Madonna so I had a friend that would make a good model for a Madonna, earlier in life my Mother mentioned the idea of getting me to paint one, but upon research, only masculine ones were found in books, obviously men were used as models for them. I created this piece, and fused some deco, cubist-abstract space and signified the 1st and 2nd coming of Christ with two golden cubist stars, and finally I decided to allow a breast to act as Jesus’ Halo.
