On a summer afternoon, a mother is engrossed in the arduous task of washing clothes in an old-fashioned tin wash bucket. Her hands are raw and red, but each garment is meticulously wrung out and hung to dry under the relentless sun. Her baby boy, full of youthful energy, sends his ball careening by Mama is undeterred by the unfolding chaos or the creeping fatigue. She continues her labor with an unspoken strength. The playful commotion seems to only fuel her resolve to get the work done rather than distract her. Each piece of clothing that dries light stands as another symbol of her commitment to family.

Notably, Lee's work featured faceless figures, a deliberate choice that allowed her to accentuate body language and encapsulate the very essence of her subjects without any distractions. Her artwork served as vivid and joyful reflections of African-American culture, firmly establishing her as a central figure in this genre.
