Catalogue Note

The present work showcases Gwathmey's signature style of melding abstraction with social realism. Through his use of stark black outlines and flat planes of bright color, the artist lends his subjects, African-American agricultural workers in the south, a powerful presence without romanticizing the hardships they faced.
