Hand signed, dated in pencil on the reverse by Simpson. This piece is a diptych containing two serigraphs printed on felt panels. The figures in this diptych are of an unidentified black woman and of a fragment of Lena Horne, American singer, dancer, actress and civil rights activist born in 1917 in Brooklyn, whose career spanned over 70 years appearing in film, television and theater and brought her from the chorus of New York's infamous Cotton Club alongside the likes of Duke Ellington at the age of 16 through becoming a nightclub performer and moving to Hollywood. This work exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2000 and is in the permanent collection.
