About This Print

American Girl, A is one of at least six female bust prints (also American Girl B, Spanish Girl, German Girl, Parisienne and Woman in Bagdad) created in 1954 using similar techniques of broad embossed lines to define the image space.  While American Girl B uses shades of brown tinged with blue and orange American Girl A revels in red, orange hues, and blues.
