In the Style of Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000)

Jacob Lawrence was considered an expressive, narrative cubist painter. He painted many pictures and compiled them to tell a story. Lawrence referred to his style as "dynamic cubism.” His primary influences were the shapes and colors of Harlem. He brought the Black experience to life using blacks and browns juxtaposed with vivid colors.
