Eldzier Cortor: Etching and Aquatint

(Selection by Morghan Williams)

Eldzier Cortor (January 10 1916 - November 26 2015) was an African American artist and printmaker who was influenced by both African art and European surrealism. In addition to the surreal and abstract elements that are present in his paintings and prints, Cortor is also known for his depictions of Black figures and for featuring Black women as central subjects in his work.

Kathy collaborated with Cortor in the last years of his life in her studio where she printed 16 of the plates he had made at The Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.
