The WPI began working with the Romare Bearden Foundation in 2020 and has since been processing their archives and artwork documentation. We anticipate releasing the catalogue raisonné database of artworks executed between 1964–1969 in 2025. We also host a selection of digitized materials from the artist’s estate, and sponsor webinar series and the recording of oral histories related to the artist and his circle.
Romare Bearden Papers
The Romare Bearden Papers document the artist’s professional art and writing careers with digitized materials sourced from the Romare Bearden Foundation
Bearden Oral Histories
The Wildenstein Plattner Institute’s Romare Bearden Oral History Series explores Bearden’s life, career, and legacy through interviews with scholars, collectors, collaborators, and family members.
