Romare Bearden His Life and Art
by Myron Schwartzman
Synopsis: The first full-length biographical and critical study of the America’s greatest collagist, Romare Bearden, this volume includes never-before-published conversations with the artist as well as vivid reminiscences by the artist’s friends, family, and colleagues. From his youth in a household regularly visited by Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes, and Fats Waller, Bearden made a name for himself in the art world in the 1940s, showing with Motherwell, Baziotes, and Jacob Lawrence; studied in postwar Paris; had a songwriting career in the 1950s; and turned almost exclusively to collage in the 1960s.
