Slave family
This painting is based on the short story ‘The Passing of Grandison’ by Charles W. Chesnutt. In this story you read how a slave master gets fooled by his most stupid slave, Grandison. There is a short passage in the story where the slave owner and his father discuss Grandison’s family. This painting is inspired by this particular passage, because here the slave owner talks about Grandison’s son, who he thinks is a potential danger to the order of the plantation, because he is too talented. He can even read. In my painting he is depicted as superman, that while his father is the real hero of the story.
