Almeda - CHARLES SALLEE
Etching, 1936-37, edition unknown but probably about 25 impressions. 8 3/4 x 7 7/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. Here we have a superb impression printed with tone. The margins are full. The condition is near perfect apart from a repaired tear in the upper margin not affecting the image. This is a Cleveland WPA print and bears the WPA/FAP ink stamp below the image. This is endearing portrait is one of several he etched. Sallee's work is discussed in the stellar Reba and Dave Williams catalog, Alone in a Crowd, Prints of the 1930s-40s by African-American Artists.
