  • Customer Reviews
In his epic "Migration Series," Jacob Lawrence stirringly told the tale of African-Americans’ mass exodus from the rural South to the urban North in search of a better life. “The Migration Series, No. 58,” depicts children enjoying the education that they were denied in the South. The son of migrants, Lawrence (1917 – 2000) extensively researched the event before painting his vivid, 60-panel tale of migrants’ struggles and triumphs. The 1941 exhibition of the series was so overwhelmingly successful that two major museums bought all of the paintings and Lawrence became one of the first African-Americans to break into the segregated art world.
Renowned African-American artist Jacob Lawrence broke ground with his expressive paintings depicting African-American life and history. Strongly influenced by his surroundings in Depression-era Harlem, Lawrence (1917 – 2000) was also inspired by the community’s rising African-American writers, artists and musicians. The artist created images brimming with flat, fragmented shapes and brilliant colors and dubbed his style “dynamic cubism.” He was nationally recognized at age 24 when his masterpiece, “The Migration Series,” was exhibited in New York.
