Credit Line:
The Collection of Ronald E. Patterson and Thomas R. Corbin, Anacostia Community Museum, Smithsonian Institution, gift of Ronald E. Patterson and Thomas R. Corbin
Inventory Number:
2008.0006.0001
Description:
Freeman's bold figurative painting, "Love Letters III," depicting three African-American women, is a prime example of his powerful style. Using deep swatches of color and broad brush strokes, the ladies become nearly abstract as they gaze outward.
Robert Freeman (1946-) is known for his vivid figurative paintings depicting well-to-do African-Americans at sophisticated gatherings. With expressive faces and body language, Freeman reveals the deep emotion of his characters even within crowds. Freeman's unique use of color and gesture render his figures nearly abstract. Based in Boston, Freeman has exhibited extensively in the Northeast, including at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the University of New England.

Inventory Number:

Description:
Bearden was strongly influenced by the works of other artists, including musicians. "Out Chorus" echoes the beats of Harlem's thriving jazz scene, and the music’s improvisational form.
Romare Bearden (1911-1988), considered one of America's greatest artists, was a draftsman, painter, watercolorist, and most preeminently, a collagist. He received many honors during his life, and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1987 from President Reagan. Born in North Carolina, and raised in Pittsburgh and New York’s Harlem, Bearden worked in various styles, including cartoon and drawing, social genre, modernism, abstract expressionism and photo-collage. Bearden was best known for the universal themes employed in his collage paintings and prints. He found his imagery in both the everyday rituals of African American rural life in the south and urban life in the north, combining those American experiences with his personal experiences and interest in classical literature, religion, and music.
The Studio Musuem in Harlem and the National Gallery of Art exhibited posthumous retrospectives of Bearden's works.
