Centennial Solo Exhibition of Works by Romare Bearden at Michael Rosenfeld Gallery


NEW YORK, NY.- Michael Rosenfeld Gallery presents a solo exhibition of works by Romare Bearden (American, 1911-1988). Romare Bearden: Collage, A Centennial Exhibition will be on view from March 26 to May 21, 2011. This is the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery’s second solo show of Bearden’s work and the first to focus exclusively on collage, the medium through which Bearden arrived at his mature style. Created between 1964 and 1983, the twenty-one works in the exhibition exemplify Bearden’s exceptional talent for storytelling as well as his mastery of the medium’s fragmentation of form and space. Together, they reveal an innovative artist whose style is distinguished by partial images, unexpected juxtapositions,
