The Family, 1948. Romare Bearden (1911-1988) was an African-American artist and writer. He worked in several media including cartoons, oils and collage. Bearden's early work focused on unity and cooperation within the African-American community. After a period during the 1950s when he painted more abstractly, this theme reemerged in his collage works of the 1960s, when Bearden became a founding member of the Harlem-based art group known as The Spiral.
