Romare Bearden: Collage of Memories by Jan Greenberg

By Jan Greenberg

This quantity recounts the lifetime of the 20th-century African-American university artist who used his Southern adolescence, big apple urban, jazz and Paris to steer his daring and significant paintings. Romare Bearden defined his approach of creating paintings as "putting anything over whatever else". Experimenting with textile, photos, colored papers and different fabrics, Bearden constructed his personal variety in university, that is firmly rooted in African-American tradition.
