Romare Bearden: Collage of Memories.

by Jan Greenberg

Published by Abrams, 2003
52 pages
ISBN: 0-8109-4589-4

Ages 8-14

This biography of the 20th century artist whose works drew on both his childhood in the south and his adult life in the vibrant neighborhoods of Harlem uses Bearden's own work to illustrate his life. As always, Greenberg, a premier writer about art and artists for children and young adults, makes the connection between the artist's life and work, including how Bearden's involvement in the Civil Rights Movement led to his breakthrough development of the trademark collage pieces for which he is best known.
