The Cotton Pickers1876 by Winslow Homer
Two female plantation workers stand in a field of cotton, their upright figures a symbol of their strength against the soft white fibers that surround them. Winslow Homer painted this narrative after the American Civil War with the hope that former slaves might have a better future now that they were free. (http://arteverywhereus.org/Art-Gallery/id/132)
