Published by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York, this catalogue explores the historically neglected but critically important body of abstract oil paintings, watercolors, and collages Romare Bearden created between 1952 and 1964. An in-depth essay by the exhibition’s curator, Tracy Fitzpatrick, provides new perspective on Bearden’s engagement with abstraction over this period, highlighting how these abstract works prefigured the collages depicting African American culture for which he is now best known. The essay also addresses Bearden’s work within the context of the New York avant-garde of the 1950s–60s. Includes an introduction by Lowery Sims, a chronology, and bibliography.
