About

Jacob Lawrence’s chosen subject of African-Americans and daily life is seen here, highlighting how Lawrence valued telling these stories. His painterly technique and and layered cubist-style are also particularly evident.

From Museum of Fine Arts, Houston:
Lawrence renders the interior of a bar with an intense compositional dynamism, bold patches of flattened color, and an overall sense of patterning. But these edgy, splintered forms also point to a larger feeling of social unease. The schematic figures and the fractured bar lend an air of tension and disquiet, one that relays the collective anxiety of the black community on the cusp of the Civil Rights Movement. In this scene, painted after the Supreme Court's 1954 "Brown v. Board of Education" decision, desegregation and its violent backlash loom overhead, much like the timekeeping brown angel who overlooks all.
