Collector shares paintings and message of Jacob Lawrence
Like Ross, Lydia Gordon, PEM’s Associate Curator and Exhibition Coordinating Curator, is thrilled to see the reunited series shared with new audiences. She is also grateful to the couple who helped to make it all happen.
“For more than 60 years, the Struggle series remained understudied because of its dispersal. Together, Harvey and Harvey-Ann Ross sought to reunite the lost narrative series so the content of the work would no longer be suppressed, sharing it far and wide with audiences across the country,” says Gordon. “We are forever grateful for their vision and commitment to this project.”
