The colorful appearance of most African Art Prints can tell us a lot of things about their culture. Since the people in their country live differently in small communities, it is understood that they have different practices. Romare Bearden grew up in a middle class of an African-American family. He was born in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 2, 1911. Both of his parents were college graduate and so they expected the same thing from him. After the Great Migration, his family settled down in Harlem, a place in New York City. His artistic side came out when he met a friend in Pittsburgh named Eugene, who showed him all the drawings he made of the brothel. It was sad that Eugene died at an early age but despite that, Romare never forgot him. Every year he celebrates his death anniversary as a reminder of his formative years. Most of his works were centered on literature and religion.
