Writings about Lois
“Ms. Jones was an iconic figure, and an important historic link in a path-breaking generation of black American artists.  Her eclectic, academic work, in a career spanning nearly 70 years, ranged from impressionistic landscapes to political allegories, and from cubistic depictions of African sculptures to realistic portraits.”
— Holland Cotter, The New York Times, June 1998
