The Romare Bearden Digital Catalogue Raisonne project aims to create a comprehensive record of all artworks created by Romare Bearden (1911-1988). In partnership with the Romare Bearden Foundation, the WPI is in the process of digitizing the artist’s archives and conducting research on Bearden’s artistic output. To aid in our gathering of data, we would be grateful to receive information about any works by the artist currently in private collections. We encourage owners to submit the pertinent details regarding their work(s), along with photographic documentation, using the button below. All information will be kept confidential.
Please note that the WPI is only collecting information at this time and is not yet reviewing works for inclusion in the catalogue raisonné. More information about how to receive an opinion from the Bearden CR Committee about a given work is forthcoming.
