Newark, NJ.- Last fall, The Mint Museum in Charlotte presented this major retrospective of the work of Romare Bearden (1911-1988). The exhibition Romare Bearden: Southern Recollections surveys 50 years of the artist’s work, from his early abstract paintings to the influential collages that dominated his later body of work.
