A Highwaymen painting by Highwaymen artist Harold Newton highlights the many fine art pieces being sold in Manor Auction's May 1st Palm Beach Florida Jewelry, Fine Art & Collectible Auction. The Florida Highwaymen artists are a group of 26 African American artists who painted various Florida scenes from the mid-1950's through the 1980's. Most often working from their garages and other non-conventional venues, the Florida Highwaymen would then travel around Florida selling their works to individuals and businesses in an almost door to door format. Very often painted on board and making use of vivid colors, the highwaymen works became wildly popular and may be found hanging on the walls of homes, businesses, museums and collectors alike.
In 2004, the original 26 Florida Highwaymen were inducted in to the Florida Artist Hall Of Fame:
Curtis Arnett, Hezekiah Baker, Al Black, Ellis Buckner, George Buckner, Robert Butler, Mary Ann Carroll, Johnny Daniels, Willie Daniels, Rodney Demps, James, Gibson, Alfred Hair, Issac Knight, Robert L. Lewis, John Maynor, Roy McLendon, Alfonso Moran, Harold Newton, Lemuel Newton, Sam Newton, Livingston, Roberts, Willie Reagan, Cornell Smith, Charles Walker, Sylvester M. Wells, Charles Wheeler
