About

Despite the bare walls and desolate window of the room, Lawrence offers a colorful and lively depiction of a quilt and pillows, of vibrant colors and patterns that decorates the bed. This establishes a sense of home that the migrants created for themselves in the North, despite the unfavorable housing conditions which usually included cramped and crowded apartments. In addition, the depiction of handicraft suggests important aspects of African-American culture the migrants brought North with them.

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.
