Medium: linoleum cut

Mexican Girl - MARGARET  BURROUGHS - linoleum cut

African American, (1915-2010)

Linoleum cut, 1998, edition unknown. 21 1/2 x 13 3/4 in. Initialed in the block, lower left. Signed, titled and dated in ink. This is a superb impression printed on white wove paper. The margins are probably full and the condition is fine. (There's a small bent corner, lower right, and a smudge on the bottom center margin.) This large, dynamic print relates to an earlier and smaller version of the same subject. (An impression from the Melvin Holmes Collection of African American Art measures 13 3/4 x 8 3/4 in. It's dated 1953 and the edition was only five impressions.) Dr. Margaret T. Burroughs was a visual artist, writer, educator and founder of the DuSable Museum of African American History in Hyde Park (Chicago). Burroughs spent a brief time in Mexico where she studied printmaking under the direction of Leopoldo Méndez at the Taller de Gráfica Popular. As a leader of the Black Arts Movement in Chicago, her works focused on community and the social empowerment of art.       $3,500
