JACOB LAWRENCE: THE MIGRATION SERIES. Ed. by Elizabeth Hutton Turner. Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., 1993. Published in association with Rappahannock Press, Washington, D.C. 176 pp. with 116 ills. (61 col.). 30 x 26 cm. LC 93-1402 ISBN 0963612905 In English.
Showcasing a major cycle of narrative paintings produced by prominent African American artist Lawrence (b. 1917) in 1940 and 1941, this catalogue features full-page reproductions of 60 panels depicting in an expressive cubist style the post-World War I exodus of blacks from the rural South to northern industrial cities, each of the richly colored works accompanied by a descriptive caption by the painter. Seven essays include discussions of the economic and social conditions that catalyzed the "Great Migration," Lawrence's materials and techniques, the personal and artistic concerns informing his treatment of the African American experience in both the South and the North, and the role of New York art dealer Edith Halpert in arranging the first exhibition and publication of the series.
