Set Description and Contents:
Studying at the Sorbonne in Paris after World War II (1939-1945) exposed Bearden to early twentieth century European modernism. Additionally, he learned how to incorporate the ideas of jazz in the studio of American cubist Stuart Davis (1894-1964) during the late 1940s. Although Bearden had taught himself the American academic tradition of painting, he was primarily a modernist. His works of the forties reflect the black experience, while his paintings of the fifties were primarily abstract religious subjects.
