This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

Workshop is exemplary of Jacob Lawrence's later, somewhat more stylized printmaking. In it, a group of adults is hard at work on a carpentry project while two small children play with leftover tools, perhaps suggesting that they will follow in their fathers' footsteps.
