SAMELLA LEWIS (1924 - ) Untitled (Creole Mules).
Color screenprint on cream wove paper, circa 1953-58. 381x502 mm; 15x19 3/4 inches, wide margins. Artist's proof, aside from an unknown edition.
Provenance: acquired directly from the artist; private collection; thence by descent to a private collection, North Carolina. The owner's great aunt acquired this print from Samella Lewis when both women taught at Florida A&M University in the 1950s.
This image is different from the same-titled edition of 60 printed in 1995. We have not located another impression of this extremely scarce print.
