Sallée worked as an interior designer for many important clients, including the Cleveland Browns.
After teaching at Karamu House, Sallée went on to become the first African American graduate of the Cleveland School (now Institute) of Art, earning his degree in 1938. Initially focused on painting and printmaking, he subsequently launched a distinguished professional career in interior design. Bedtime is the artist’s most famous image, having earned national renown when it was featured in James A. Porter’s groundbreaking survey Modern Negro Art, published in 1943.
