    This work is characteristic of Walker's oeuvre, known for addressing race relations and American history through grotesque caricatures and confrontational imagery. "Li'l Patch of Woods" is part of a series that explores the artist's recurring themes within the context of the American South during the Civil War era. While the specific scene depicted in "Li'l Patch of Woods" remains open to interpretation, the silhouetted figures and ambiguous setting evoke a sense of violence, oppression, and racial tension.

    In excellent condition. A copy of this work is in the permanent collection at Harvard University.
