Lady and the God of the River By Romare Bearden

Selected by Laura James

I love this piece because of the way the woman is reclining as she waits for the river god… beautifully Black and composed. Even with the all the bright light of the god and the water her figure dominates the piece. Bearden clearly knows the power of women.
