Art Gallery

These are the paintings of my late husband Jean Paul Hubbard. Jean Paul was a prominent and respected Louisiana artist who also was the head of the Southern University Fine Arts Dept. He worked in oils, acrylics and water colors. He also created several sculptures, but painting was his true love. His preferred medium was acrylics. Jean Paul was also an accomplished muralist. His paintings are included in the art collection of the Louisiana Governor’s Mansion, the Tuskegee University Art Museum and more. Two of his paintings are included in my book Be Encouraged. I hope you enjoy his art as much as I do.

    Hi Helen,

    These are a few paintings from my private collection and they aren’t for sale. I’m considering producing limited edition fine prints, but writing has kept me super busy.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    I am saddened to learn of Mr. Jean-Paul Hubbard’s passing, as I have admired his work since I had the occasion of meeting him at the Southern University campus in Baton Rouge in the 1970’s. I was a good friend of Southern University in New Orleans art professor Dr. Roscoe Reddix, where the late Dr. Eddie “Jack” Jordan was head of the department. I recall when the three of them painted a mural dedicated during the opening of a new building on the New Orleans campus. All of us wound up in the Bernadine Proctor book, Black Art in Louisiana, 1989, of some 80 or so artists active in Louisiana at the time.I consider myself fortunate to have met such a man as Mr. Hubbard, who left such a legacy of leadership at Southern University, as did other important university leaders the late John Biggers,Texas Southern ,Houston,Tx,and Professor John Scott , Xavier U. New Orleans, who passed this year. Otis

      Thank you so much for the warm memories about my late husband. I remember Jean Paul proudly showing me that mural when we visited New Orleans in the early 1990s. Blessings to you!

    Hello,

    I’m in graduate school and I’m particularly interested in the series of “Porch People” paintings for research that I’m doing. Is there a way to view more paintings in that series or is it possible to at least get descriptions of the other paintings in that series? Any leads you might have would be great.

    Thanks,

    Sarah

    i have abstracts signed Hubbard that must be works of this artist! I love them!

      Hello,

      Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’d love to see the art work, though I’m no expert I could probably recognize my late husband’s signature. So if you have digital pictures I’d be happy to take a look. Either way, I’m glad to meet a fellow art lover. Thanks again.

    I am so glad to have come across this site during my search for information about african american art.

    My parents (Mitchell and Malvia Albert) were colleagues and neighbors of Dr. Hubbard. They purchased a painting, very similar in context, to the “Porch People” however it was an image of an elderly woman holding a fishing pole.

    My mother loved that painting, and I would like to know the name of the piece, if you have it.

    The only information –Dr. Hubbard’s signature on the front and the date 1987 on the back. Thank you.

    I was sadden to learn of Jean Paul’s passing. We shared many conversations about art as I am a great lover of art. During our time together I was a student of Theatre at Southern University. Before I graduated I was finely able to purchase one of Jean Paul’s pieces. I am certain that the price I paid for it was a gesture of his friendship toward me because it was a small price to pay for a piece I consider to be a great work. Today I have many nice pieces, but I consider Jean Paul’s piece to be one if my best. The piece is called “Classified”, it is an abstract, multimedia work that features oil, acyclic, corrugated cardboard and news print. I will try to share it through this blog.

      Thank you for visiting. My late husband was as kind as he was talented. I’d be happy to add a picture of your painting by him to the gallery. Take care.

    My mother found a painting in a house she and her husband inherited from his mother. There was a painting in the house that is signed Paul Hubbard 1957 but the signature looks different. It is dated 1957. My mother said it is painted on “a thin piece of wood”. I wonder if this is possibly the same artist? I can share a photo although it isn’t a great one, if you would like. My email is lindsey9989@gmail.com.
