Commentary
Part of "Portfolio One," 15 works by 15 artists. Samella Lewis donated portfolio no. 7 of "Portfolio One" to the Scripps art collection. A most unusual assignment, the artists were asked to create 50 pieces, and the edition totaled 50. (In this portfolio, each of the artists created 50 works, except Senghor Reid and Ben Jones.) Among the printmaking processes included were lithographs, linocuts, and collaged pigment prints. Other media used were collage, watercolor, acrylics, photography, charcoal and oil stick.

This piece consists of two components. The larger piece (18 x 13 extant) is a collage. The smaller piece, (8 x 10), is a black-and-white photo lithography of a young African American woman, dressed in the clothing of the 19th century. This piece is translucent, allowing the collage beneath it to be seen.
