The work, titled "There are combustibles in every State, which a spark might set fire to. -- Washington, 26 December 1786" depicts the Shays' Rebellion, an uprising of farmers in Massachusetts following the Revolutionary War, according to a news release.

And most importantly, we are looking forward to having visitors enjoy this new addition -- in these final two weeks at The Met and at the upcoming venues of the show."

Lawrence, who lived from 1917 to 2000, was one of the first nationally recognized Black artists in the United States and his colorful, abstract work portrayed the experiences of African Americans, according to the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
