The impressive work of American artist Jacob Lawrence will again be on display at The Phillips Collection. This exhibition focuses on a series of 15 silkscreen prints created by Lawrence to tell the story of the life of Toussaint L’Ouverture, a former slave who led the fight for the liberation of Haiti during the French Revolution. Lawrence is an expert at depicting the quest for freedom, as evidenced by his Migration Series, so you won’t want to miss your chance to view these rarely seen prints.
