The Highwaymen: Florida's African-American Landscape

Florida Art Highwaymen Painting

"For the first time, the real story behind the Highwaymen has emerged . . . a well-researched, lively, and comprehensive overview of the development and contribution of these African-American artists and their place in the history of Florida’s popular culture."--Mallory McCane O’Connor, author of Lost Cities of the Ancient SoutheastThe Highwaymen introduces a group of young black artists who painted  their way out of the despair awaiting them in citrus groves and packing houses of 1950s Florida. As their story recaptures the imagination of Floridians and their paintings fetch ever-escalating prices, the legacy of their freshly conceived landscapes exerts a new and powerful influence on the popular conception of the Sunshine State.While the value of Highwaymen paintings has soared in recent years, until now no authoritative account of the lives and work of these black Florida artists has existed. Emerging in the late 1950s, the Highwaymen created idyllic, quickly realized images of the Florida dream and peddled some 100,000 of them from the trunks of their cars.   Working with inexpensive materials, the Highwaymen produced an astonishing number of landscapes that depict a romanticized Florida--a faraway place of wind-swept palm trees, billowing cumulus clouds, wetlands, lake...

 “Here, Monroe tells perhaps his most compelling tale of all—about the only Highwaywoman, Mary Ann Carroll.”—Jeff Klinkenberg, author of Alligators in B-Flat “A tale of triumph, of personal survival, of discipline, and finally, of faith.”—Linda Hudson, mayor, Fort Pierce, Florida “An inspiring story of how one African-American woman artist not only survived a man’s world but also did it during the long storm of a racist climate.”—Ginger Smith Baldwin, senior legislative assistant, Florida Senate “A great read of an inspiring story about a woman of faith, character and drive. Mr. Monroe captures the essence of the Highwaymen’s art, Mary Ann Carroll’s life, and the entrepreneurial spirit that helped Carroll succeed in a racially charged environment.”—Tom Wagor, president, Marco Island Historical Society “So many lives of artists are made possible, or at least made easier, by the support of someone else making the dinner and tending to the children while the singular experience of Mary Ann Carroll, Highwaywoman, related in this book reveals an artist overcoming the institutional challenges of race and gender while tending to the daily chores.”—Jean Ellen Wilson, author of Legendary Locals of Fort Pierce  In the years since the art world d...

The Journey of the Highwaymen

Florida Art Highwaymen Painting

The widely collected paintings and inspiring tale of Florida's Highwaymen is now fully revealed in this book which includes, for the first time, works by all 26 artists. Illustrated with 204 full-color plates, The Journey of the Highwaymen traces these painters from the early 1950s through the Civil Rights movement as they captured a vision of Florida as a paradise for new beginnings. Over the course of two feverish decades, these artists produced--and sold--an estimated 100,000 paintings of Florida's semitropical seacoast. Mentored by Florida's preeminent landscape artist A.E. "Bean" Backus and led by the colorful Alfred Hair and Harold Newton, the Highwaymen forged their own enduring legacy in American painting. Through extensive research and interviews, journalist Catherine Enns pieces together this remarkable story of art and its creators.

Florida Art Highwaymen Painting

The latest volume in Gary Monroe's Highwaymen trilogy"There are only two ways to get to know Al Black's art: 1) buy this book, or 2) go to jail."--Maarten van de Guchte, director, Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens"The story of a man who had squandered his God-given gift and was able to redeem himself by painting visions of Eden that could give hope to and soothe the terrible pain of his fellow inmates, as well as bring inspiration to the prison staff."--Annegreth T. Nill, chief curator, Museum of Art, Ft. LauderdaleBy now, the story of Florida's Highwaymen--self-trained African American painters whose visions of the state were sold to travelers out of the trunks of their cars--is fairly well known. Emerging in the late 1950s and led by painters such as Alfred Hair and Harold Newton, the Highwaymen produced an astonishing number of landscapes that depict a faraway place of windswept palms, billowing clouds, placid wetlands, and lush sunsets.As demand soared, Al Black (b. 1946) emerged as a salesman par excellence. Often earning 35 percent commission, he was discouraged from creating his own paintings. But gradually he learned, partly from repairing damaged works that had been loaded into his car while still wet.Inevitably, the boom times went bust--. Black struggled with drugs and ev...
