William Aiken Walker: Southern Genre Painter by Roulhac Toledano, August Trovaioli

The extensive paintings of William Aiken Walker illustrate life in the late 1800s to the early 1900s, when cotton reigned. As a Southerner born to an Irish Protestant father and a South Carolinian mother, Walker grew up with a profound respect for the often-misunderstood cotton field worker. His painterly expressions document cultural and social conditions of the time, offering respect for the people themselves.
