Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA-Full-color, full-page reprints of the 60 dramatic paintings of Lawrence's "Migration Series" fill half the pages of this catalog for the traveling exhibition. The text includes essays by various historians who relate the series to the time period and supply critical material about the painter's work. Quotations from Lawrence himself are particularly meaningful. Excellent black-and-white reproductions illustrate the historical and cultural part of the book and include a portrait of the artist. Beautifully printed and illustrated, the book will be useful for art classes or YAs interested in black history.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful series of paintings on the Great Migration of African-Americans who moved from the old Confederacy to the north and west in enormous numbers between 1915 and 1965. The full series is seldom seen as a whole and this book, with excellent reproductions, is a great way to do so. It could usefully be read in conjunction with "The Warmth of Other Suns" by Isabel Wilkerson.
