The present work is accompanied by a letter of authentication by Robert M. Hicklin, Jr., who writes that Cotton Pickers by a Field "is typical of the artist's best work in this genre. The frame is of the type Kennedy Galleries would typically have used on paintings by Walker in the 1960s and 1970s, though more often we see it with a linen liner."

We extend our sincere thanks to Mr. Hicklin for his kind assistance in authenticating the present work.
