This is an image of a painting of the Belle Camp fishing camp used by the Bellingrath family before the property was developed into the Bellingrath Gardens and Home.
This is a color painting on canvas showing a wooden building surrounded by trees and shrubs native to south Alabama. The house is on a small rise above the edge of a river with stairs and a board walk leading down from the house to a pier on the river. An African American man is standing on the pier near a large fishing net.
