The Art of Bert Williams

Bert Williams' art career began as a child prodigy in Washington D.C. in the 1930s, and continued through his teen years, where he landed illustrations in The Washington Post, and later saw him draw portraits for military newspapers during World War II. However, his most striking work came with the promotional campaign for his 1965 directorial effort The Nest of the Cuckoo Birds. Williams’ disquieting folk art imagery of the film’s female killer served as a centerpiece to a series of posters and ads for the Southern Gothic swamp thriller. The incredibly rare color one-sheets created for the film -- featuring Williams’ proto-Basquiat imagery -- are worth a fortune among collectors today.
