Label Text:This lithograph illustrates nostalgia for southern rural life. Although Bearden left North Carolina for New York at a young age, he once stated, "I never left Charlotte, except physically." This work, with its bright colors and exotic flora, seems to combine memories of the American South with a Caribbean landscape, where Bearden had a second residence.
