Little Family - Collage - SOLD

Click image to enlarge.
Size: 40 w x 30 h.

Another collage for this week. It is not the strongest category on eBay, unless the artist is listed or otherwise well-known. But as it is one of my favorite art forms, I am using it anyway. This one is done in a primitive, folk art style, which goes way back to the 1970's for me, when I was making fabric wall hangings.

Please scroll down to post #25 below for this week's useful link on artist Romare Bearden. His collages are exceptional.

Useful Link - Art of Romare Bearden

Romare Bearden is one of my favorite artists. And his collages are especially compelling. Quoting from his biography page: "Romare Bearden's life and art are marked by exceptional talent, encompassing a broad range of intellectual and scholarly interests, including music, performing arts, history, literature and world art. Bearden was also a celebrated humanist, as demonstrated by his lifelong support of young, emerging artists." To see a few of his dynamically creative pieces and read his biography page at the Romare Bearden foundation online, click here. Once in, click on the tab at the top of his page that says "art & life".
