From the essay "Being My Own Woman" by Faith Ringgold, "The American People Series is about the condition of black and white in America. There was so much going on in American at that time in our history...But, I had something to add; the picture, the visual perception of the way we are and look, the face color and forms of those involved. And, the fact that I am a woman doing this. I wanted my paintings to express the moment I knew was history. Even in 1963 that stood for something." Acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
