      ELIZABETH CATLETT (1915 - )
      Sharecropper.

      Color linoleum cut on smooth cream wove paper, circa 1952. 452x425 mm; 17 5/8x16 1/2 inches, full margins. Signed, titled, dated "1970" and numbered 24/60 in pencil, lower margin. A superb impression with rich, dark colors of this important print.

      Sharecropper, one of Catlett's most iconic images, was originally printed in 1952. She then published it as Cosechadora de algodón in the journal Artes de México in 1957, as well as two editions of 60 in both black and color in 1970.
