Domestic Worker.

Lithograph, 1946. 546x390 mm; 21 1/2x15 3/8 inches, full margins. From a presumed edition of 50. Signed in pencil, lower margin. A very good, dark impression of this very scarce print.

We have located only one other known impression of this print, which is in the artist's collection, illustrated in Herzog, p. 61.

This is the first lithograph Catlett created with the Taller de Gráfica Popular upon her move to Mexico in 1946 and was the first lithograph she printed in Mexico. It coincides with her Negro Woman linoleum cut series, 1946-1947, which was the first print series Catlett began when she arrived in Mexico.
