Romare Bearden is widely regarded as one of the most gifted and visionary American artists of his generation, and among the most important African-American visual artists of the 20th century. Best known for his work in collage, in which he captured both the sights and the energies of the various places he'd lived (including the Deep South, Harlem during the renaissance, and St. Martin in the Caribbean), Bearden also worked frequently in oils and watercolors. Regardless of medium, his art was bold and expressive, lending a truly American perspective to his subjects. The Art of Romare Bearden is a documentary that explores his life and work, featuring readings from Bearden's own writings (read by Danny Glover) and observations from his friends and colleagues. Morgan Freeman narrates. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Romare Bearden's art by Basil918 April 23, 2004 - 4:33 PM PDT

A serviceable introduction, with gorgeous images, of the American collage artist. It's brief -- 30 minutes -- but covers the basic ground and offers plenty of views of his exciting art work. It's a companion piece to the National Gallery show now touring the country -- presently at the SF MOMA: a terrific show. If you're within viewing distance, go see the show first; movie later.
