Emma Knowlton Lytle lived life devoted to art, creativity and communication. The range of her artwork includes painting, sculpture, film, photographs and poetry; all were used to record life in her native Mississippi Delta and to give a voice to her deep convictions. She was a pathfinder, peacemaker and mystic in the sense that her deep reverence for all life — Black and white — was reflected not only in her daily actions, but through her artwork.

The purpose of this website is to present the artwork of Emma Knowlton Lytle for your enjoyment.
