Robert Lindsey Walker

Robert Lindsey Walker, who lived his entire life in Savannah, Ga., worked as a stone setter and took odd jobs after retirement in the 1960s, including maintaining yards and driving a cab. Throughout his life he collected discarded materials. After Walker's death in 1996 numerous drawings on the material he collected were discovered. This is a simple, small ink portrait, but Walker also made meticulous, colorful drawings showing buildings, landscapes and the neighborhoods where the widow ladies he transported in his cab lived. Barbara Archer Gallery in Atlanta sells Walker's work.
