Romare Bearden (September 2, 1911 – March 12, 1988) ranks among some of the most respected American 20th century painters. His early works were mainly realist works delivered in religious themes. Bearden’s later works mainly expressed family culture and were delivered in Cubist and semiabstract collage style. When depicting family life and culture, his main subjects were African-American families. To get the best of his works, he tried out different media such as oil, collages, and cartoons. Bearden graduated from the New York University in 1935. In 1950, he studied Art History and Philosophy at Sorbonne. During the 1960s, most of his paintings were abstract. It’s during the same period that he reintroduced the African-American community, advocating mainly for cooperation and unity. Bearden became one of the pioneer members of The Spiral, which was an art group aimed at advocating for the African-American artist's involvement in the civil rights struggle. He was also involved in writing and co-writing of several books as well as working as a songwriter. Bearden received the National Medal of Arts in 1987. Because of the quality of his artistic works, New York Times described him in his 1988 obituary as “the nation's foremost collagist.” He studied at the Lincoln University before transferring to Boston University. His involvement in artistic works saw him act as an art director for the school's student magazine called Beanpot. As an artist, Bearden’s works were mainly influenced by those of artists such as José Clemente Orozco and Diego Rivera. His works are widely collected worldwide. Several art dealers and galleries stock Romare Bearden framed art while several others avail them in other diverse finishing options.
