Jacob Lawrence War Series Pin Set/2

Created by Pintrill for the Whitney Shop on the occasion of Where We Are: Selections from the Whitney's Collection, 1900-1960 at the Whitney Museum.

Jacob Lawrence's War Series describes first-hand the sense of regimentation, community, and displacement that the artist experiences during his service during World War II. Lawrence served his first year in a racially segregated regiment where he was first given the rank of Steward's Mate, the only one available to black Americans at the time. He went on to serve in an integrated regiment as Coast Guard Artist, documenting the war in Italy, Egypt, and India. Those works are lost, but in 1946 he received a fellowship to paint the War Series. The fourteen panels of the series present a narrative which progresses from Shipping Out to Victory.

Each set includes two pins of grasping arms on a card depicting the painting as a background.
