More about The Old Plantation
The Old Plantation depicts African slaves enjoying their leisure time. Two men are seen playing musical instruments while another is seen dancing with a stick. This painting is believed to be a scene in John Rose’s own plantation.
The art work was left to John Rose’s son-in-law through his will. It remained in the family for more than a century until it was auctioned in 1928 or 1929. The painting is currently at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum in Williamsburg.
