После освобождения его семья продолжала вести хозяйство на плантации до 1930 года. В 1939 году в возрасте 85 лет он переехал в Монтгомери, где спал в кладовке похоронного бюро и в магазине сапожника.

As Kurzmeyer notes of Traylor’s career shortly after meeting Shannon: Traylor now drew scenes of carousing as well as men, women, and children energetically teasing one another or occasionally even fighting. Children exasperate the old with long sticks.

Bill Traylor has become an almost mythical figure in the history of American folk art. Born into slavery in 1854, he only began to draw at the age of 82 in 1939, when he moved from the plantation where he was born to Montgomery, Alabama. From his observations on Montgomery's Monroe Avenue and his memories of his life on the plantation, he created his own original pictorial world. This book presents not only Traylor's compellingly native drawings but also fascinating documentary photographs that reveal the daily life of southern blacks - in particular Traylor and his milieu. These photographs, taken by Charles Shannon and the Swiss journalist Annemarle Schwarzanbach, reminiscent of the works of Walker Evans, capture the atmosphere of Montgomery and rural Alabama at the same time as Traylor was beginning to draw.The contributors discuss Traylor's life and work, placing them in their social and historical background.

This beautifully produced book contains several essays discussing "outsider artist" Bill Traylor', his brief art "career," and the character of his work. Some essays are more interesting and engaging than others, but they are all helpful in understanding the artist and his work. One disappointment of the volume: it doesn't contain a lot of reproductions of Traylor's art. Still, I would recommend this to anyone intrigued by Traylor.

We saw an exhibit of this man's work at the Mingei museum in San Diego. They had a copy of this book, but none to sell so we had to find it on our own...Bill Traylor's work is just delightful and this book shows it very well!!!

I'm a little disappointed in the condition of the book. I bought it used - it was supposed to be "like new" but it had discolored page edges. But I'm happy with the book.

I asked for a book on Old South history or folk art for Christmas, and my mom picked up Deep Blues: Bill Traylor 1854-1949. What a book! I get lost in the work of Traylor -- the king of folk art (sorry Mose T). And the photographs of Montgomery in the early 1900s tell a great story. This book moved me in so many ways, I hope it does for you as well.
