Title: ROMARE BEARDEN : Southern Recollections
Author: Hanzal, Carla M. et al (eds)
Price: Not Available
ISBN: 9781904832980
Description: London, Charlotte: Giles in association with Mint Museum of Art, 2011. 29cm., hardcover, 143pp. illus., most in color. Publisher's summary : Romare Bearden: Southern Recollections presents 90 works from the full span of the artistís career, drawing on the Mint Museumís and other public and private collections of Beardenís work. As well as numerous stylistic influences, from African, European and Chinese art, this new volume focuses on how his childhood in North Carolina served as a key source of inspiration for him throughout his life. Bearden recorded the notions of ritual, and the celebration of a lost way of life, as families like his own dispersed across the urban centres of the north east. Colour plates from the accompanying exhibition are presented throughout four essays by leading Bearden scholars. These include Dr Leslie King-Hammond, who focuses on the feminist component in his art, as well as the role of complex iconographic features such as trains and birds, as possible metaphors for God in the machine and the means of deliverance to a new life.
