It Jes' Happened Inspired by memories stretching back to the time of slavery, Bill Traylor, began drawing and painting in his eighties after moving from the rural farm where he had lived to the city of Montgomery, Alabama. Nowadays regarded as one of the most important American self-taught folk artists, this picture book is a tribute to his life and work. R.Gregory Christie's colour illustrations pay homage to Bill Traylor's style of painting and choice of subject matter. An afterword gives more factual detail about the artist's life and rise to fame.
