      ROMARE BEARDEN (1911 - 1988)
      Untitled (Abstracted Landscape/Figure).

      Double-sided watercolor, with monotype on soft fibrous paper, circa 1952-55. 660x508 mm; 26x20 inches. Signed in ink, lower left recto.

      Provenance: private collection, New York.

      This experimental work on paper is a striking, double-sided work from Romare Bearden's overlooked abstract period of the mid-1950s. Bearden showed a similar group of oil paintings and watercolors at the Barone Gallery in 1955--in particular, A Walk in Paradise Gardens, oil on canvas, 1955, in the Barnett-Aden Collection of Robert L. Johnson. Fine pp. 25-26.
