In Negritude, the silhouette of a black female figure forms the foreground of the composition. With its curves, materiality, and form the figure bears similar physical characteristics to Enwonwu’s sculpture Torso of Womanhood (1986-88). Between his sculptures and paintings, Enwonwu transferred an 'abstract orientation through biomorphic representations of male and female torsos' (ibid., pp 196). As a contrast to his other dance themed Negritude paintings which depicted multiple subjects in motion, Negritude depicts the main figure in thoughtful solitude.
