Synopsis

Romare Bearden Collage of Memories by Jan Greenberg

This volume recounts the life of the 20th-century African-American collage artist who used his Southern childhood, New York City, jazz and Paris to influence his bold and meaningful art. Romare Bearden described his way of making art as putting something over something else . Experimenting with fabric, photographs, coloured papers and other materials, Bearden developed his own style in collage, which is firmly rooted in African-American culture.
