“Special Reservations”: Elizabeth Catlett | Virtual Lecture

Art History Lectures with Rebecca Albiani

Thursday, March 10, 2022
11:00am – 12:30 pm


"I have special reservations," the artist Elizabeth Catlett evocatively titled a signature work of her 1940s print series The Black Woman. An African American printmaker and sculptor, Catlett (1915-2012) moved to Mexico in 1946 and worked for two decades with a printmaking collective devoted to socially conscious art. Her images of working-class women afford heroic status to the dispossessed.
