About

An imaginative scene from the rural South shows the fatal boll weevil, a cause for the failure of the cotton crop and thus the poverty in the South, destroying the plant before the viewer’s eyes. The long and pastel cotton crop mimics the long form of the mountains in the background, but contrasts heavily with the ominous black creatures attached to them. When asked about the mammalian nature of his depiction of the insect, Lawrence confessed that he had never even been to the South at the time he painted this, let alone see a Boll Weevil, thus highlighting his heavy use of imagination in this panel.

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
