The Patchwork Quilt By Romare Bearden

Selected by Petra Richterova

"For me, Bearden’s work startles the dichotomy between realism and abstraction. A humanist, he gives us a glimpse of social narrative, but the true impact and meaning of his work lies in another place – in the realm of the non-verbal, the emotional, the spiritual, the existential – that place where the essence of our humanity can be found. Like a true philosopher and bluesman, Bearden is a limitless conversationalist.” —Petra Richterova
