[Silk Screen Print]: People in Other Rooms (Harlem Street Scene)
New York: Harlem School of the Arts, 1975. Unbound. Fine. Silk screen print in colors on wove paper. Measuring 22½" x 31". Unframed. Full margins, one tiny tear at the upper margin, light offsetting on the verso indicates evidence of having once been mounted on artists board, not visible on the print, a bright and fine impression. Signed, titled, and dated in pencil by the artist, this is copy number 5 of 15 artist's proofs; there was also a regular edition of 150, all published by the Harlem School of the Arts. The image depicts a black man carrying a guitar in the foreground, with an old man with a cane in the slight distance, with other men, a woman, and children around him. Lawrence found his inspiration in the vibrant colors he encountered in the streets of Harlem where he lived and worked, particularly in the waning days of the Great Depression in the late 1930s. A very handsome image. *Nesbett 75-1.*.[Attributes: Signed Copy]
