Danforth Art is pleased to present Jacob Lawrence's series of silk-screen prints, The Legend of John Brown, based on his 1941 gouache paintings. Works explore the life of the controversial abolitionist John Brown, part of the historical epics Lawrence produced throughout the 1930s and 1940s focusing on heroic 19th century figures as well as the Great Migration of the early 20th century.
