John Dunkley (1891–1947) is widely considered to be one of Jamaica’s most important artists. “John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night” creates an international context for its appreciation. Composed of forty-five works, it includes his paintings from the 1930s and 1940s, which are primarily landscapes defined by their distinctive dark palette and psychologically suggestive underpinnings, alongside rare carved wood and stone figurative sculptures.
