The Highwaymen

Julia D'Amico's lively documentary presents a group of African-American painters in Florida who began selling their landscapes in the 1960s, operating from their cars and charging around $25 per canvas. Many are untrained, and some were lured by the money back when field work paid as little as $3.50 a day. Their paintings may look kitschy to some, yet the artists and their collectors genuinely love these depictions of Florida swamps and grasslands. 41 min.
