Jacob Lawrence: The Life of Toussaint L'Ouverture
The Curtis Ransom Collection shares 15 dramatic silk-screen prints based on a series of 41 paintings the African=American artist completed in 1938. Lawrence, then a 20-year-old graduate of the American Artist School in New York would later become well-known for a series of painted panels he commenced three years later, about the Great Migration. But it was in Lawrence's first series, in which he tells the story of Haiti's struggle for independence from France through the life of Toussaint L'Ouverture (1742-1803), a slave turned revolutionary leader, that he developed his signature approach. On view through Feb. 27, 2019
