Happy 101st birthday to Jacob Lawrence. A lifelong advocate for African American history and social justice, Lawrence referred to his style as “dynamic Cubism,” and used the shapes and colors of Harlem to define his work. See this portrait of Lawrence in “Face to Face: Portraits of Artists” as well as two of his works on view in our galleries.
