William Aiken Walker: in Florida
by Timothy A. Eaton
About the Catalogue
William Aiken Walker: In Florida, with an essay by Timothy A. Eaton, contains 80 pages, 18 color plates (8 fold-outs) and 23 black and white illustrations.
Born in Charleston, South Carolina, William Aiken Walker (1839-1921) is best known for his extensive and original body of paintings depicting the life and environments of emancipated slaves, especially cotton workers in the post-Reconstruction American South. However, his large and distinctive body of work in Florida is a critical aspect of his oeuvre that played an important role in his life and the history of art in America.
