Year: 1968.

Size: 30 x 45 inches

In order to invoke the bitter and prolonged strike of the California grape pickers against repressive working conditions, Davis painted an emblematic portrait of a young laborer. The name of Cesar Chavez, embattled head at the time of the United Farm Workers in Delano, California, was added to announce a concert at New York City’s Carnegie Hall benefiting the cause. Support for the inflammatory issue not only lowered grape consumption in the United states, but resulted in International Grape Boycott Day on May 10, 1969.
