Seattle Art Museum
This exhibition reunites Jacob Lawrence’s revolutionary 30-panel series Struggle . . . from the History of the American People (1954–56) for the first time since 1958.
One of the greatest narrative artists of the 20th century, Lawrence (1917–2000) is best known for The Migration Series (1940–41), exhibited at SAM from January 21 through April 23, 2017, which told the story of the mass exodus of African Americans from the rural south to the industrial North following World War II. Struggle is likewise a narrative work in series and engages key moments from the American Revolution and the early decades of the republic to address, as Lawrence put it, “the struggles of a people to create a nation and their attempt to build a democracy.”
