Bearden The Block Oblong Silk Scarf

Regular price $98.00

Romare Bearden's (American, 1911–1988) exuberant tribute to Harlem is a celebration of the lively New York City neighborhood that nurtured his life and work. Though he was born in North Carolina, Bearden spent formative time in Harlem as a child, and in 1940, he established a studio in the same West 125th Street building as the artist Jacob Lawrence. Each of the six panels that make up The Block (1971), reproduced on this 100% silk-twill scarf with a hand-rolled hem, represents an aspect of local life, from the barbershop to the corner store.
