Chaleur is from Clementine Hunter's abstract period, 1962-63. During this time, James Register fashioned magazine picture montages on cardboard and took them to Clementine. This was the only serious attempt by anyone to influence her art. In two years she did over 100 paintings. It is also interesting to note that all the abstract pictures are signed with the backwards C.
