African American master Jacob Lawrence’s powerful Migration Series ranks as one of the great visual and social documents of twentieth-century American art. With stark poignancy, the paintings in the series chronicle the movement of blacks from the rural South to the industrial North between the two world wars. The Migration Series is on loan from The Phillips Collection, in Washington, D.C.
