About

Labor agents (recruiters) were often sent down South from from the North during World War I when companies struggled to keep up with demand. To black Southerners, these agents were seemingly the herald of opportunity. Lawrence depicts a white labor agent writing on a sheet of yellow paper, presumably the names of new recruits. A line of men looking for work extends beyond him into the barren landscape. While Lawrence conveys a tone of hope and opportunity through these men, dark overtones of the work conditions and treatment that lie ahead of them are unavoidable.

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.
