VTG (1979) -- Romare Bearden Framed Print Poster -- "Alto Composite" 

Description: This reproduction of Bearden's 1974 work, "Alto Composite," is framed and preserved excellently. It seems to have been a promotional poster for an arts event in 1979. There may be more information on the back on the poster, or underneath the matting, but we didn't want to risk damaging or creasing the work by removing it from the frame.

While it doesn't have the same vivid, sanded, ephemeral look of the original (see for yourself what I'm talking about here:, it is still a wonderful example of Bearden's celebrated visual interpretations of mid-century jazz music and life. The lines that both cut through and align the depicted saxophonist evoke the parallel possibilities always sifting through the improvisatory mind. This will be a blessing to any home that values art. 

Condition: Poster and matting are in excellent condition; frame is in good condition, sturdy, but with some scratches around the edges


   With frame: 31.25 x 22.25"
