About

A line of livestock trails across the foreground of the panel horizontally. Two packing houses stand in the background pumping thick smoke into the air. Here, Lawrence counters his traditional depictions of Southern farm life and poverty in the series, depicting an industrialized agriculture instead. Farms as such differed from the Southern farms migrants were used to. Livestock and crops were sent from the Midwest to major cities to be processed and distributed. Chicago, being a major hub for the meat packing industry, was not only a large source of industrial agricultural sites, but also employment. Stockyards and meatpacking plants drew thousands of black workers to them both during and after World War I, as portrayed on this panel.

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.
