To make his artwork, Romare Bearden cut out pieces of paper, photographs, magazine pictures, and fabric. He arranged them on paper or board then glued them down to make collages. Bearden’s art often tells stories about African American life. In this collage, two men and a woman sit together in a barn, perhaps on a break from work. Bearden’s subjects seem large compared to the space that they occupy. There are shifts in scale, too—heads, hands, and feet are bigger or smaller in proportion to the bodies they belong to, and pairs of hands are mixed and matched in different sizes.
