Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000), who painted the African-American experience, is among the most well-known and respected black American figurative artists of the 20th century. But a new exhibition, “Black Orpheus: Jacob Lawrence and the Mbari Club” (at Ohio’s Toledo Museum of Art through Sept. 3), puts Lawrence on the international stage, as it broadens our understanding of the artist, his influences and his art.
In 2020, as statues of Confederate generals and other contentious historical images were being taken down in many cities, Sanford Biggers, the acclaimed New York-based contemporary artist, and Amy Gilman, the director of the Chazen Museum of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, were watching with keen interest.
