The African-American artist Tim Brown (1923) paints his childhood in an uneducated, naive style: relatives, friends, fishing on the river, working on the land, his dog Bark. As a child, on his parents' farm, he painted on old planks and scrap wood with paint his father used to redecorate the house. In the 1950s he started depicting childhood memories, in his own words to show his two children something of his own childhood. The painter leads a simple, secluded life on his farm in Mississippi, where he was also born.
