A Near Fine copy with a previous owner insription on flyleaf in a Fine dust jacket. A bright, tight copy. The Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman series of 1938-40 are among Lawrence's greatest achievements as a painter. Including 32 and 31 images, respectively, the narratives document the struggles and heroic achievements of these two nineteenth-century Abolitionists. Executed in tempera, the images are remarkable in their simplicity, vivid color, boldly expressive style, and use of the series format to convey narrative content.
