Denson, Ark., ca. 1942


Gift of Madeleine Sugimoto and Naomi Tagawa, Japanese American National Museum


Mounted on board, unframed.

In the foreground, a barrel and a neat pile of stacked firewood stand in front of a barracks to the left; a small blue wheelbarrow with yellow lettering, "Jerome," on the side sits near the barrel; a basketball backboard and hoop are a short distance behind and to the right. At center, a man in black with hoe over right shoulder walk with a child in yellow coat and hat. In the background, behind the figures are barracks and brown outline of trees. The entire painting is predominantly grey with the suggestion of a late fall or winter setting.

Signed in medium, bottom centerr: H. Sugimoto, Winter, Jerome Camp
