Jacob Lawrence's epic "Migration Series" powerfully and poignantly recounted the mass exodus of African-Americans from the rural South to the urban North in search of a better life during and after World War I. “The Migration Series, No. 58” illustrates children reveling in education, a right that they were denied in the South. Lawrence (1917 – 2000), whose own parents were migrants, extensively researched the Great Migration before creating his vibrant 60-panel narrative. The piece was a critical success when it was first exhibited in 1941 and two major museums bought all of the paintings, making Lawrence one of the first African-Americans to be embraced by the segregated art world.
One of the first nationally recognized African-American artists, Jacob Lawrence compassionately and compellingly illustrated African-American life, history and his concern for human freedom and dignity. Growing up in Harlem during the Depression, Lawrence (1917 – 2000) was profoundly influenced by his surroundings and the community’s emerging African-American writers, artists and musicians. Calling his style “dynamic cubism,” he distilled images and experiences into flat, angular forms and bright colors. At age 24, Lawrence was critically acclaimed after his masterpiece, “The Migration Series,” was exhibited at New York’s prestigious Downtown Gallery.
