About

Industrial labor in what Lawrence interprets as a socialist society was largely inaccessible to black workers before 1914. However, during World War I, hundreds of thousands of white workers left the workforce to be deployed. Due to the usual pool of workers being absent and the increasing demand for goods, American companies then began looking to the African American population as a last resort. Lawrence captures both the isolation of and yearning for workers through the white industrial worker shown in the upper right corner of the scene. While operating industrial machinery, the worker is shown overlooking a large, barren landscape: a space that would be full of workers. The cool, blue color scheme Lawrence uses in this empty space evokes an eerie, solemn tone; overall conveying the effects of World War I both economically and racially.

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 mat 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 a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.

"The quality is what really caught my eye. All the other stuff was great, but it all was about my love of Wright being so far ahead of his time and then you completed the circle with prints and weight of paper that blew me away."
