Mother and Child.

Cast bronze, with a golden patina, cast in two parts, 1985. Approximately 229x216x121 mm; 9x8 1/2x4 3/4 inches. Incised with the artist's initials "EC", lower left verso.

Provenance: private collection, Atlanta.

This striking bronze sculpture is comprised of two pieces that fit together - the mother and child were cast separately. Elizabeth Catlett's image of maternity has the child sit inside the open space of the abstracted mother. Catlett made several versions of this popular subject in different material - including black marble, mahogany and orange onyx.
