About the Author:

ART

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up-A delightful introduction to the artist and his work, based on interviews with Lawrence. Leach talks about the subject's early life and how he began to paint at age 13, experimenting with geometric shapes and patterns, and explains how personal experiences influenced his art. The paintings themselves are colorful and detailed narratives that depict African-American history and culture, and they vividly portray the lives of the poor and disenfranchised in a way that will appeal to young people. The author follows Lawrence's life and career up to age 25, and includes reproductions from his "Migration Series" and "Harriet Tubman Series" as well as many of his single pieces. The book ends with an invitation for readers to try creating their own works of art.
