paper and fabric collage on Masonite

13¾ by 22 in. 34.9 by 55.9 cm.

Executed in 1972.


This work will be included in the forthcoming Romare Bearden Digital Catalogue Raisonné currently being prepared under the sponsorship of the Wildenstein Plattner Institute, Inc.

The work is executed with paper collage on Masonite. The colors are bright and clean, and the collage is stable. There is evidence of frame abrasion along the extreme edges, most noticeably along the upper and left sides. There is a small associated loss to the upper right edge and lower right corner of the blue rectangle in the lower right of the composition. There is very slight lifting of some of the collaged elements, particularly in the right corner of the large black bird in the upper center, in the top corner of the white necklace on the figure on the left, in the upper left corner of the blue rectangle along the extreme right edge, and in the lower-most part of the hand in the bottom right corner.
