Summary "'Jacob Lawrence: Lines of Influence' explores the life, work, and legacy of acclaimed painter, storyteller, educator, and chronicler of the mid-20th-century African American experience, Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000). As a celebration of the centennial of the artist's birth, this publication follows the exhibition of the same name, organized by SCAD Museum of Art in fall 2017. Arranged in two parts, the exhibitions first section, 'Relations', traces some of the engagements that shaped Larwrence's personal and professional life and presents his work indialogue with that of his contemporaries, mentors, and historically significant artists. Though he arrived at his distinctive formal language early in his career, the engagements that shaped his personal and professional life remain evident. Part two, 'Legacy', explores Lawrence's influence on contemporary artists living and working today and those who share similar formal and conceptual concerns. Thematic strands in the original exhibition include the uncovering of historical blind spots, a preoccupation with narrative and storytelling, and the elevation of everday experiences as symbolic markers." --publisher's description, dust jacket.
