        CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979)
        Joven (Youth).

        Lithograph, 1946. 343x273 mm; 13 1/2x10 3/4 inches, wide margins. Proof, from an edition of an unknown size. Printed by the artist at the Taller de Gráfica Popular, Mexico City. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. A very good, dark impression of this very scarce print.

        Provenance: estate of the artist Allen Wolf, New York; private collection, Seattle.

        We have not found another impression of this print at auction in 20 years. We have located only one other impression in the collection of Clark Atlanta University, illustrated in Le Falle/Collins's In the Spirit of Resistance. According to Lucinda Gedeon, another impression is illustrated in the album El Taller de Gráfica Popular, Mexico, published in 1949. Gedeon Ea7.
