One of the early paintings is an abstraction in the general manner of the New York School and is so beautiful that, if he had not had something else to say, something special, it becomes obvious that Mr. Bearden could have kept on in this vein. . . But he did have something else to say, something as everybody now knows by now, about what is called "the Black experience."
