WALTER WILLIAMS (1920 - 1988)
Black Madonna.

Color woodcut on wove paper, 1965. 672x465 mm; 26 1/2x18 1/4 inches, wide margins. Artist's proof, aside from an unknown edition. Signed, titled, dated and inscribed "imp" and "Artist's Proof" in pencil, lower margin.

A richly inked impression of this very scarce print - we have located only one other record of this print in the Wes and Missy Cochran Collection. The artist made another version of this subject in 1982.
