Label from Elizabeth Catlett: Art for Social Justice, La Salle University Art Museum, March 11 - June 4, 2015:

The Indian women and children in these prints have simplified facial features accentuated by the rebozos or shawls wrapped around their heads. Rebozos were a common garment worn by women of all social classes in Mexico. With Mujer Con Rebozo, Catlett emphasizes the woman’s powerful hands, suggestive of her working class status, and her intense shadowy gaze into the distance. With Rebozos, Catlett creates a serene yet haunting image of two children, the younger projecting a waif-like appearance. Due to Catlett’s manipulation of the lithographic process, the drapery lines begin to dissolve in the lower portion of the composition, accentuating the other-worldly affect.
