The Art of Elizabeth Catlett from the Collection of Samella Lewis

Widely recognized as one of the more important artists of the 20thcentury, Elizabeth Catlett (1915 – 2012) was a printmaker and sculptor whose career spanned more than 6 decades.

The Art of Elizabeth Catlett comprises prints and sculpture created between 1946 and 1996, exploring the many themes that permeate Catlett’s work: social and racial justice, motherhood, and the Black-American experience; and includes works by Catlett’s husband Francisco Mora and student and long-time friend, Samella Lewis.

This exhibition was organized by Landau Travelling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California.
