Photos: Florida Highwaymen paintings

The Florida Highwaymen painters became known for quickly creating vivid scenes of wild Florida. The works, often still wet, were sold from the trunks of the artists’ cars along U.S. Highway 1 for as little as $10 in the late 1950s and ’60s. They used painting to escape the tomato fields and orange groves during segregation.
