Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey

Romare Bearden... Untitled - Two Obeah Figures (1987, Watercolor and gouache). From the exhibition Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey at DC Moore Gallery in New York. "...In 1977, Romare Bearden created twenty collages based on episodes from The Odyssey, Homer’s ancient Greek poem. Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey is the first full-scale presentation of these works since they were originally shown thirty years ago. The exhibition will also include additional compositions relating to Bearden’s interest in classical themes and will examine his motivations in creating these works within the context of the Odysseus Series and his overall oeuvre."
