IN PERPETUITY: Elizabeth Catlett (1915 - 2012)

Elizabeth Catlett's Reclining Woman rests comfortably across from Mickalene Thomas's Portrait of Qusuquzah at the 2010 Bronx Museum exhibit Stargazers: Elizabeth Catlett in Conversation with 21 Contemporary Artists. BlackArtistNews photo. All rights reserved.
"Many of today's artists are free from the particular artistic, social, and political constraints of Catlett's time but the determination and commitment to create their own space and place in the world while staying true to their artistic and conceptual concerns remains steadfast across generations."
