Jacob Lawrence: Three Series of Prints

Celebrating the 100th birthday of Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000), this exhibition features 26 graphic works done between 1917-1997. Included are his Hiroshima Series
of eight prints, the Genesis Series of eight prints and 10 prints from the Toussaint L'Ouverture Series. Since his first published print in 1963 Jacob Lawrence has produced a body of prints that is both highly dramatic and intensely personal. In his graphic work, as in his paintings, Lawrence has turned to the lessons of history and to his own experience. From depictions of civil rights confrontations to scenes of daily life, these images present a vision of a common struggle toward unity and equality, a universal struggle deeply seated in the depths of the human consciousness.

The Jacob Lawrence: Three Series of Prints exhibition comes from the collection of Alitash Kebede of Los Angeles, CA. The exhibition and museum tour was organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions of Los Angeles, CA.
