Thank you! What a wonderful story and a chance to appreciate the work of a great artist. Thank you for sharing. Brought back lovely memories of NYC and my working years in Manhattan and walking through the Art Museums. Is there a fabric panel depicting The Seamstress — that would be lovely to quilt. I learned so much this morning … and I have a degree in art. Wow! So many great artists that we know so little about. And – can’t we all relate to this scene – the concentration necessary to get THAT detail just right. Thanks! To say I am blown away is putting it mildly !! The man must have never slept! His ideas of how to express a concept could not be contained in one painting, but had to be a series… amazing to say the least. I hope every last one of his works is eventually found. And I am also chagrinned to realize his work was not mentioned during my art education at a major university. A travesty! Thank you so much Lori !! Pertaining to the painting w a seamster at top of this page… anybody else wonder whether he was lefthanded or maybe he was on that side of the machine to trouble shoot? Great eye! I missed that – ha! Thanks ! Its those eye injections I get for macular degeneration…LOLOL! My doc would love that! Yes, I thought he was on the back side of the machine as well. Same here. But I liked it so much I ordered a couple of his books. There’s a lovely children’s version of the Great Migration. This has been a real eye opener for me and I went to many websites. I finally googled “paintings of Jacob Lawrence” and choose images. So many beautiful paintings —it will take me a while to go through. Then I ended up at an NPR website showing his migrations pictures. They are heart-wrenching. Some could have been painted today. I still have so much to learn about Lawrence. Thank you Lori for sharing this with us. Comments are closed.
