New York City has always attracted avant-garde artists.
From the energetic Abstract Expressionists to the pioneers of American Pop Art, forward-thinking creatives have flocked to the city that never sleeps for decades. While each and every modern movement cultivated in the Big Apple has made its mark on the history of art, the Harlem Renaissance enabled an entire population to flourish.
Throughout the 1920s and into the 30s, New York City’s Harlem neighborhood thrived as a cultural hub for African Americans. During this “golden age,” the arts thrived, culminating in a cultural movement that saw the creation of one of modern art’s most moving works: The Migration Series, a prolific collection of paintings by African American artist Jacob Lawrence.
