Examines the work of the Florida landscape painters known as the Highwaymen, a group of young, untrained African-American landscape painters. They emerged from the small central Florida town of Fort Pierce in the late 1950's and early 1960's. They were prevented by segregation from selling their paintings in traditional art galleries. So they sold their paintings out of the trunks of their cars, usually for around $35 a painting. They painted on wallboard. In 1995, the Highwaymen became recognized by the art world and their paintings sell for thousands of dollars. The Highwaymen mainly painted Florida back-country scenes, using bold strokes of dramatic colors
