About

Train travel served as an escape for many black southerners, but came with restrictions such as daily humiliations and dangers; the results of segregation. Lawrence portrays two white figures standing tall with batons in hand, watching African American men, women, and children closely as they line up to buy train tickets to leave the South. These white figures intently oversee every move these travelers make. There is a sense of eagerness in the painting throughout the crowd; however there is an overall tone of tension from the restraints and pressures placed upon them. The following message is conveyed: one must essentially be careful and mindful of each and every move if they sincerely want to leave the South.

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.
