The first work by the African American artist Elizabeth Catlett to enter the collection of the AGO joins numerous other works of protest and resistance in the collection of Prints & Drawings. Association Curator and R. Frasier Elliott Chair of Prints and Drawings, Alexa Greist, discusses why a work by Catlett has been on her list of desired additions to the collection since she began at the AGO.
