Elizabeth Hutton Turner, Curator. Duncan Phillips was impressed by Jacob Lawrence‟s combination of abstraction and socially relevant subject matter and felt it would fit in well with his ever-expanding definition of American Modernism. The Migration Series, although focused on the migration of African Americans from the South to the North, it, as Charles Moffett writes in the exhibition catalogue‟s forward, also addressed matters of migration and immigration that are part of the experience of the nation as a whole.

Jacob Lawrence’s work during the last five decades has powerfully expressed the African-American experience. As a modern-day griot, or storyteller, his words and images convey metaphors of injustice, strife, change, hope, and beauty. Created on the eve of World War II, as American industry once again sought black labor, The Migration Series is also a cautionary tale, citing disappointments of the recent past and inspiring new hope for the future.

I have Jacob Lawrence prints in my home and was delighted to have a collection of them in two formats: hardback and paperback. The books were especially important, because my grandchildren were coming to visit and have always been intrigued by the pictures. I gave the paperback to them to take home. The colors and representations captivate them. My grandson loves the story of John Henry who had been introduced to him by his father and quickly identified the pictures in the books that he could associate with John Henry. My granddaughter wants to be an artist someday, and so spends a great deal of her time drawing forms and shapes. Jacob Lawrence's use of color to suggest form and shape was ideal for her.
For me, the pictures are reminiscent of the stories I heard as a child and the events that I witnessed. For these reasons Jacob Lawrence's work has always resonated with me. Of course his talent and skill as an artist are the basis for any consideration of his work.

This book is magnificent, and by giving the reproductions enough space to heighten the simplicity and even sparseness of the lives of the rural black Southerns who trekked north in search of economic opportunity and relief from the fear that Jim Crow instilled, this volume is a great aesthetic achievement.

A beautiful book recording the art and writing of Jacob Lawrence, whose mother and father were part of the Great Migration of blacks to the North (1940s-1970s) searching for opportunities, and a more human life, denied them in the South . His parents settled in Harlem. Others in this important piece of American history settled in Chicago, Los Angeles, St Louis, etc. Lawrence's paintings are small, done on wood boards in vivid colors and depict many aspects of this great migratory wave; they are vibrant narrations, as are his words, of this important and tragically unfulfilled chapter in American history. I highly recommend it.

You heard it hear first: 500 years from now, this series of pics will be the most salient American artistic achievement.
Edition adequate to the task from the Phillips Collection/MOMA.
Samugor
Thorough text, excellent background articles and fine reproductions. More than just an art or picture book, but an important piece of documentation brought to life.
Kerdana
Important series of paintings, quite a piece of history documented by an artist who knows his subject!

A marvelous book from a national treasure. I saw the entire series at MoMA in NYC June 2015. The entire series is on view there until Sept, after that, the other half of the panels go back to the Phillips Collection in DC. The book is wonderful to look at but obviously it cannot capture the life in the original art. It is a nice way to relive the actual experience of going through the exhibit. Definitely buy the book and go see the exhibit.
Saw the complete original series recently at Pa.Museum of Art. Wonderful souvenir for friend who accompanied me.
