About

Lawrence here exhibits his talent for illustrating the narratives of important figures from African-American history. This painting depicts Harriet Tubman, the famous abolitionist who served as a scout for those escaping slavery from the South to north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Tubman takes center-stage in the space, clutching a revolver and pushing a male figure to carry on, while a group of women, one carrying an infant, follows on. The color palette is kept almost entirely to primary colors, allowing the focus to rest on the figures in the foreground. The title, Forward, correlates with Tubman’s physical movements, while also corresponding to the year of the piece, 1967, in which the Civil Rights Movement in the United States was gaining traction.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
