Description: Original oil on board by Romare Bearden (1911-1988), one of the most influential African American artists of the 20th Century. Titled “Bird,” this striking oil painting is of Charlie “Yardbird” Parker (1920-1956), an amazingly talented jazz saxophonist of the 1940s and 1950s. He is considered to be one of the talented musicians in jazz history.
Overall in very good condition. This painting is accompanied by the original frame Romare Bearden chose for this particular painting. His fingerprints can be seen all along the back of the canvas board, as well as on the back of the frame.
