Untitled (I am a Negro Woman).

Linoleum cut printed in brown and black on cream wove paper, 1946. 130x102 mm; 5 1/8x4 inches, wide margins. Signed and dated in pencil, lower margin.

Elizabeth Catlett made this block at the same time as her I am a Negro Woman series, but did not include it in the set of 15 linoleum cut prints. We believe this to be the first time this extremely rare print has come to auction.
