Betye Saar: Black Doll Blues


by Maddy Inez Leeser (Interviewer), Betye Saar (Artist), Julie Roberts (Foreword), Rachel Federman (Contributor), Katherine Jentleson (Contributor)

An investigation into Saar's lifelong interest in Black dolls, with new watercolors, historic assemblages, sketchbooks and a selection of Black dolls from the artist’s collection

This volume features new watercolor works on paper and assemblages by Betye Saar (born 1926) that incorporate the artist’s personal collection of Black dolls. These watercolors showcase the artist’s experimentation with vivid color and layered techniques, and her new interest in flat shapes. While Saar has previously used painting in her mixed-media collages, this is the first publication to focus on her watercolor works on paper.

Hardcover, 223 pages.
