James Havard first gained recognition in the 1970s for pioneering the Abstract Illusionist movement that included artists such as Al Held and Allan D'Arcangelo. By the 1980s and 1990s, Havard returned to figuration, creating works akin to Art Brut masters and Jean Dubuffet that draw inspiration from Native American, African and Caribbean tribal cultures, cave paintings and children's drawings. Over their decades long friendship and association that began in the 1980s, Allan Stone mounted numerous exhibitions of Havard's work. Havard has exhibited extensively for over forty years in the United States and Europe and his work is included in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in Sweden, among others.
