Editorial Reviews

From Depression-era Harlem, Jacob Lawrence worked his way up through federal art workshops to become the first nationally recognized African-American artist of his generation. His intimate views of street life and images of historic figures honor the struggles of African-Americans. Jacob Lawrence: An Intimate Portrait offers an engaging glimpse into both the interior and exterior lives of this most influential painter, interweaving talks with the charismatic Lawrence, wife Gwendolyn Knight, colleagues, and critics, with the painter's own magnificent works.
