Jacob Lawrence (American, Modernism, 1917-2000): Forward, 1967. Tempera on Masonite panel, 23-7/8 x 35-15/16 inches (60.6 x 91.3 cm).

‘Forward dramatizes the life of Harriet Tubman (1820?-1913), “the Moses of her people.” Born into slavery, Tubman escaped in 1849 and then repeatedly returned to the South to rescue other slaves. Jacob Lawrence relates an incident in her story with masterful economy, eliminating all but the essentials … In the context of the ongoing Civil Rights struggles of the late 1960s, Lawrence portrays the historical Tubman as a timeless exemplar of moral courage and determination.’

“… Jacob Lawrence was the most widely acclaimed African-American artist of the 20th century. Known for producing narrative collections like the Migration Series and War Series, he brought the African-American experience to life … also taught, and spent 15 years as a professor at the University of Washington.”
