The Highwaymen, a group of 26, all men and one woman have come a long way. A number of these wonderful artists have passed away, and the remaining original Highwaymen are now aged and gray. In their journey, they have accomplished a list of accolades, but only over years and decades. From the 1950s, times of turmoil, until 2004, that's the time it has taken twenty-six African Americans to receive recognition, an induction into the Museum of Florida History, Artists Hall of Fame, in Tallahassee Florida. The Highwaymen most recent accolade is "the Smithsonian!" In November 2017, the group was reaffirmed by the "National Museum of African American History & Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington D. C." From the side of the road to legends of the road, the history makers have earned state, national and international achievements. "But it hasn't always been that way," in reality, it has been a "struggle" that has taken decades, over a lifetime, for the group who became known as the Florida Highwaymen Original Artists.

Sam Newton is considered by many to be the ultimate Highwayman, and his prices usually reflect it. He is another fascinating personality among the Highwaymen. He is defiant, and does not like to be grouped with them. What an ego! But his work is in demand, commanding higher and higher prices.

This particular painting is superb; truly outstanding. This is not hyperbole; simply my personal reaction to this wonderful artwork.
