About this title


The widely collected paintings and inspiring tale of Florida's Highwaymen is now fully revealed in this book which includes, for the first time, works by all 26 artists. Illustrated with 204 full-color plates, The Journey of the Highwaymen traces these painters from the early 1950s through the Civil Rights movement as they captured a vision of Florida as a paradise for new beginnings.
 Over the course of two feverish decades, these artists produced--and sold--an estimated 100,000 paintings of Florida's semitropical seacoast. Mentored by Florida's preeminent landscape artist A.E. "Bean" Backus and led by the colorful Alfred Hair and Harold Newton, the Highwaymen forged their own enduring legacy in American painting. Through extensive research and interviews, journalist Catherine Enns pieces together this remarkable story of art and its creators.

About the Author:

Catherine M. Enns is a fourth-generation Floridian and native of Fort Pierce, Florida, where many of the Highwaymen began their journey. Her lifelong interest in art began as a young child while spending time at the nearby studio of Highwaymen mentor A. E. Backus. A journalist, Enns has written about art and artists for more than thirty years.
