Graham Sutherland (1903-1980)

La Petite Afrique

British, 1953

Lithograph

 

This print is a study of a natural form that evokes a twisted and decaying human body, drawing comparisons with the Crucifixion images in Print Power.

In 1953 he was working on the commission of a tapestry for Coventry Cathedral; there are echoes of that design in the small panels.
