Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am pleased to help. Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000) was one of the most important artists of the 20th century, widely recognized for his modernist depictions of everyday life as well as epic narratives of African American history and historical figures.
At present, the typical retail replacement value for your print ranges from $4,000 to $6,000 but the last recorded sale realized less:
Lot # *****

For insurance replacement, I would recommend $5,000 but for selling, I would likely market it around $3,500 and be prepared to take offers.
