The image features four African-American youngsters in front of an urban-looking fence. Honeywood, educated in art at Spelman College, came to prominence when reproductions of her work were hung in the stage living room of the Huxtable family on The Cosby Show during the 1980's. Cosby and his wife Camille had seen her work and decided to thus prominently display it. Later, Honeywood developed some of her imagery into a line of greeting cards and posters. She passed away at the young age of 59 in 2010, at which time the Los Angeles Times and New York Times wrote an obituary. There is an unusual amount of glowing tribute, online, pertaining to the artist. This print is clean and as framed, can stand free on a table top.
