Through his art, Lawrence gives us visual pleasure cut by reality -- harsh, joyful and bittersweet. He continued to successfully develop his work throughout his 70-year career, all the while maintaining his sensitivity to life and the lives of others. Not many people can maintain their art-making for that long, let alone their empathy.
