Though African-American artist Romare Bearden has gained accolades for his stunning paintings, the artist himself has always been somewhat reclusive when it has come to discussing his life and work in any sort of public forum. Now, thanks to filmmakers Billie Allen and Nelson E. Breen, fans of Bearden will not only hear key inspirational moments of his life from the artist himself, but also learn about the man behind the canvas through interviews with Bearden's close friends and relatives.
