In the 1930s, Lois Mailou Jones' art reflected the influences of African traditions, and she designed African-style masks and in 1938 painted Les Fétiches, which depicts masks in five distinct, ethnic styles. During a year in Paris, she produced landscapes and figure studies, and African influences reemerged in her art in the late 1960s and early '70s, particularly after two tours of Africa.
