This lithograph is dated the year Charles White and his wife Elizabeth Catlett arrived in Mexico City and began to explore and practice printmaking with the Taller de Grafica Popular. White, born in Chicago and a beneficiary of the Depression-era Federal Art Project, befriended numerous muralists and artists such as Leopoldo Mendez, Diego Rivera and Pablo O'Higgins who fueled his passion for social consciousness and radical populism in art. This piece signed, dated and numbered 11 of 75.
