This book relocates Bearden's Caribbean experience to the center of the work he did during the most productive period of his life. Produced in full color, it includes 130 Bearden paintings, almost all Caribbean watercolors and collages, few of which have ever been published.

Commentary by others, such as James Baldwin, Alvin Ailey, and Ralph Ellison, help round out the picture. The book focuses on several themes that Bearden treated in his Caribbean work. In his "enchanted places," a lush forest provides the setting for sensuous female nudes. His "Obeah series" explores the mysteries of local religious life, depicting a variety of ritual specialists in trance. And his "Carnival series" bursts with the energy of that quintessential Caribbean celebration. In this book, the Prices reassess Bearden's Caribbean experience, locating it at the very center of his artistic legacy.
