Betye Saar: Black Doll Blues
by Maddy Inez Leeser (Interviewer), Betye Saar (Artist), Julie Roberts (Foreword), Rachel Federman (Contributor), Katherine Jentleson (Contributor)
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.
