Harriet and the Promised Land.
by Lawrence, Jacob.
Simon & Schuster,
A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Jacob Lawrence is one of the most prominent African-American artists and in this book he turns his graphic and story-telling talents to the inspiring story of Harriet Tubman who helped lead black Americans to freedom. This powerful tribute to the courage of Harriet Tubman provides an ideal introduction to the work of African American artist Lawrence. Tubman's life is dramatically portrayed in stunning artwork, bold with bright blocks of color and informed by a keen sense of symmetry. As Tubman leads slaves to freedom, their cloaks of red, yellow and vivid blue are illuminated against the landscape. Lawrence's paintings honor their subjects; they are alive with a movement and complexity that contrast well with the sparse simplicity of the text.
