Welcome

Welcome to the online gallery of Florida Highwaymen and self-taught art. The artwork offered for sale is selected from the Monroe Family Collection.

University Press of Florida has published the ten books I have written about non-academic Florida artists. These include the primary texts, The Highwaymen: Florida’s African-American Landscape Painters and Extraordinary Interpretations: Florida’s Self-taught Artists.

Building this collection of artwork has taken more than four decades and most of the artwork was acquired directly from the artists.

Please email for more information about purchasing artwork, as well as about obtaining more information about the artists and artwork.
