        ELIZABETH CATLETT (1915 - 2012)
        Sharecropper.

        Color linoleum cut on smooth wove paper, circa 1952. 452x425 mm; 17 5/8x16 1/2 inches, wide (full ?) margins. Signed, titled, dated "1970" and numbered 31/60 in pencil, lower margin. An excellent impression, with bright colors and contrasts, of this important print.

        Sharecropper, one of Catlett's most iconic images, was originally printed in 1952. She then published it as Cosechadora de algodón in the journal Artes de México in 1957, various impressions in black, as well as the edition of 60 in color in 1970.
