Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012) "Malcolm X Speaks for Us" color linoleum cut Artist's proof, aside from the first edition of 35. Full margins. Pencil signed, dated 1969, titled and inscribed "AP/V" lower margin. Elizabeth Catlett is widely acknowledged as a major presence in African-American art. Her extraordinary career has stretched from her years as a student at Howard University during the 1930s through various political and social movements, including the Chicago Renaissance of the 1940s, the Black Power and Black Arts movements, and the Mexican Public Art Movement. Her works are collected by major museums in the U.S. and abroad. Source: Elizabeth Catlett; An American Artist in Mexico Melanie Anne Herzog Biography from Tobey C. Moss Gallery: ELIZABETH CATLETT is first and foremost a sculptor in stone, wood and bronze. But, printmaking has been an equally important facet of her artistic expression since she was introduced to lithography in 1942 at the Art Students League in New York. From there, it was a natural transition to the wood and linoleum block with tools that were familiar from her sculptural work. Catlett chose printmaking as the best path for reaching the masses of people (especially women) in the United States and Mexico who were also African-American and Mexican natives. From early experiences, Catlett faced racial challenges which she met squarely. She fought for equality in the classrooms, in the public theaters, in the museums. In her work is the proof. Image; 37 3/4" x 27 1/4".

Aesthetic Period Bronze and Needlework Firescreen

by New Orleans Auction Galleries

July 26, 2014, 10:00 AM CST

New Orleans, LA, USA

Estimated Price: $500 - $800

Condition Report: The entire frame and base is made of metal. We believe it to be bronze, with some areas highlighted with a copper wash. The frame is bent in some areas and modern fasteners have replaced the original ones on the back. It is lacking some screws which hold the frame rod to the base. There are some holes in the metal frame at the corners and crest which may have had small flowerheads. The fabric is tattered and worn, with loose threads.
