ACA Galleries, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner in 1998
New York, ACA Galleries, Faith Ringgold: Coming to Jones Road and Other Stories..., October - November 1998
"I read feverishly, especially everything that James Baldwin had written on relationships between Blacks and Whites in America. Baldwin understood, I felt, the disparity between black and white people as well as anyone; but I had something to add — the visual depiction of the way we are and look. I wanted my paintings to express this moment I knew was history. I wanted to give my woman’s point of view to this period.”
This work is in very good condition overall. The work has grommets along the top edge on the reverse used to hang the work. There is an undulation to the work due to the artist's choice of materials and working method. The variations to the surface texture are due to the artist's choice of mediums and the stray media to the work is due to the artist's working method. There are some minor, non-obtrusive scattered surface accretions to the work only viewable upon close inspection. Unframed.
