      ELIZABETH CATLETT (1915 - 2012)

      Linoleum cut on wove paper, circa 1952. 452x425 mm; 17 5/8x16 1/2 inches, full margins. Proof, before the color edition of 60 that was printed in 1970. Signed in pencil, lower right. Printed at the Taller de Gráfica Popular, Mexico City, with the ink stamp verso.

      Provenance: gift from the artist; private collection.

      This impression is a fine, early proof, with the small 'X' in the lower left corner of the block printed clearly. The impression is similar to an artist's proof dated 1957 in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Catlett became a member of the Taller de Gráfica Popular (TGP) in 1949.

      Estimate $15,000 - 25,000
