Birthday Party - MARGARET BURROUGHS
Medium: linoleum cut
African American, (1915-2010)
Linoleum cut, 2002, edition 10 plus later proofs. 16 1/8 x 19 3/8 in. Signed, dated and titled in ink. This is a good impression printed on a sturdy wove paper. The margins are narrow along the top and bottom but this appears to be the full sheet as printed. The condition is fine. This large and charming image was created in 1960 and printed in an edition of only ten impressions. This is a later printing from 2002. Margaret Burroughs was a pioneering African American artist, writer and activist. She co-founded the Ebony Museum in Chicago which is now the DuSable Museum of African American History. An impression of this print is in the Art Institute of Chicago. Burroughs also produced a 1986 etching of the same subject.
