I think this painting is about the political issues in the middle of the 1950's. I picked this painting because I want to know more about how the colored people were treated poorly and how the whites were treated with respect. This painting could also be about the construction of the making of America. The medium of this painting could be oil on canvas. I think the style of the painting is Cubism. Romare Bearden was an African American artist and also a writer. He mostly worked on cartoons, oils, and collages. In the background of the painting, there looks like a construction crane and I think that symbolizes the construction of making America.
