Black Madonna is part of Hung Liu’s continuing dialogue between past and present. This four-color lithograph is based on a Dorothea Lange photo from 1934 called Mother and Child.

Hung Liu was born in Changchun, China in 1948. She grew up in Beijing during the time of Mao Zedong. After finishing high school in 1968 she was sent to the countryside for four years during the Cultural Revolution where she worked with peasants in rice, wheat, and cornfields seven days a week. During this time, she photographed and painted these people, and they remain the subjects of her paintings today. Hung wants to give these people a life of beauty and respect in her paintings.
