The Highwaymen: Florida's African-American Landscape Painters - Monroe, Gary

This volume introduces a group of young black artists who painted their way out of the despair of citrus grove packing houses. Their 1950s images of an idealized dreamlike Florida paradise form an astonishing body of work that they sold door-to-door and out of their car trunks. 63 illustrations.
