Jacob Lawrence Lines of Influence

SCAD Museum of Art

The SCAD Museum of Art and the Jacob and Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence Foundation present "Lines of Influence," a group exhibition to commemorate the centennial celebration of the birth of acclaimed painter, storyteller, educator and chronicler of the mid-20th-century African American experience, Jacob Lawrence.  

“Lines of Influence” features rarely seen works by Lawrence and explores his connections with other artists. The show is divided into two parts: Relations and Legacy. In the first section, paintings by Lawrence are presented in context with related ephemera and works by his mentors and peers, 20th century figures including Richmond Barthe, Aaron Douglas, Diego Rivera, Horace Pippin, Romare Bearden, and Marsden Hartley, among others.

This catalog accompanied the exhibit at SCAD Museum in 2017-2018.
