About the Author

Gary Monroe is author of The Highwaymen: Florida's African-American Landscape Painters (UPF) and Extraordinary Interpretations: Florida's Self-Taught Artists (UPF). As a lecturer for the Florida Humanities Council's Speakers Bureau, Monroe has brought the Highwaymen story and self-taught Floridian art to the citizenry of Florida. Widely exhibited throughout the state, his photographs have been published in Life in South Beach and Florida Dreams.


"An excellent, beautifully illustrated introduction to a dynamic painter that sparks the viewer's interest in Newton and his fellow highwaymen, all of whom created against the backdrop of Jim Crow."--Publishers Weekly "Heralded as the finest artist of the group, Newton was admired by peers, customers, and mentors alike. His story is pieced together . . . by Newton's loved ones and friends, then woven together by Monroe within the larger tale of the emergent outsider art collective."--Austin Chronicle "Open[s] a window to a Florida that has vanished so quickly that most of the state's contemporary residents are not only unaware of these important artists, but they also possess only a sketchy idea of the unique natural environment of yesterday's Florida."--Florida Historical Quarterly
