Synopsis: A portrait of self-taught African-American artist Bill Traylor, an artist whose career began after his eightieth birthday, explores the work of this former slave whose life spanned the Civil War, Reconstruction, and both world wars.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-6?Lyons tells the story of this self-taught artist, born in 1856 in slavery and a sharecropper all of his adult life, and of his late-life obsession with creating pictures. Though few facts about him are known, she fills in the gaps with a wealth of details about African American life in the post-Civil War South. Writing with great skill, the author captures the rhythms and rituals of the rural South that influenced Traylor's paintings, such as growing cotton, singing the blues, possum hunting, and church going. In telling the sources of his creativity, she says that "Like mosquitoes in a pond, folktales multiplied on warm summer nights," and that Traylor's life was "...a sweet sorrow...balanced by a spicy humor." Deep Blues, illustrated with numerous black-and-white and full-color reproductions, is a worthy addition for the historical details of Alabama's Black Belt it provides, and for the chance it offers readers to get acquainted with a man of simple dignity and to enjoy his untutored but perceptive art.?Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ
