Jacob Lawrence
Jacob Armstead Lawrence is an American painter known for his portraits on African American historical themes and contemporary life. Lawrence calls his style "dynamic cubism", although in his opinion the main influence of French art is not as much as the shape and color of Harlem. He brought the African American experience to life using blacks and browns interspersed with bright colors. He also taught and spent 16 years as a professor at the University of Washington. Lawrence is one of the most famous African-American painters of the 20th century, known for his modernist illustrations of everyday life as well as his historical stories and figures. At the age of 23, he gained national recognition with his £ 60 series The Migration Series, which depicts the great migration of African Americans from the rural south to the urban north.
