Painting: Helen La France

Kentucky artist Helen La France captures her memories of the rural South on canvas. For her images of typical African-American life, La France, who was born in 1919, draws on a lifetime of experiences and observations of how the lives of black and white Southerners have differed—and how they have changed.
