DESCRIPTION

Throughout all his art, Romare Bearden wove a rich tapestry of literary, biblical, mythological, popular culture, and western and non-western references informed by his African American cultural experiences.  Possibly best known for his collage works, Bearden often worked and reworked those original images into astounding prints.  He pushed the process with his artistic imagination using experimental techniques, sizes, and colors.

The extraordinary versatility is visible in this exhibition’s approximate 75 lithographs, etchings, and prints drawn from Bearden’s three decades of graphic work.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from the Terra Foundation for American Art. It was organized by the Romare Bearden Foundation, New York, NY. Exhibition Tour Organization and Management by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA.
