At 95, artist Elizabeth Catlett is still going strong, living and working in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Two years ago, Catlett’s “Homage to My Young Black Sisters” sold for a record $288,000 at Swann Galleries. Another work by Catlett, completed in 1967 and never before exhibited in the United States, will highlight Swann’s African American Art auction on February 17, where the four-foot bronze “Untitled (Standing African-American Woman)” is expected to fetch $120-$180,000.
A number of other works by Catlett are in the sale, along with an untitled landscape by Robert Scott Duncanson (est. $15-$25,000), a sunflower painting by Charles Ethan Porter (est. $15-$25,000), and –in celebration of his centennial–fifteen works by Romare Bearden,Â including “Sermons: In that Number” (est. $30-$50,000).
