Art Fact Friday – Jacob Lawrence

We hope that you have a wonderful time this holiday weekend spending time with your family!

Art Fact Friday: Jacob Lawrence’s ‘The Builders’ hangs in the White House, you can see this beautiful and historical painting if you take a tour. Lawrence painted this work in 1947 and he used an egg tempera on board, 20 x 24 inches. Considered to be in the category of ‘genre painting’ because the painting depicts aspects of everyday life.

Let’s hope the ‘The Builders’ will help the populace that views it in the White House remember to build up a better country, especially now as we deal with resurfacing racial tensions. The essence of the 4th is freedom from tyranny and should be for all men.
