Betye Saar: Black Doll Blues
This gorgeously produced book is an investigation into artist Betye Saar's lifelong interest in Black dolls, featuring new watercolor works on paper and assemblages by Saar (b. 1926) that incorporate the artist’s Black doll collection. 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.
