African-American collage artist Romare Bearden emphasized the importance of ritual in “Return of the Prodigal Son.” The artwork, which is part of a series, combines modern and traditional versions of the classic Biblical story. Bearden’s work was deeply influenced by jazz and the blues, and reflects the improvised style of both types of music. Drawing upon the blues, this piece imparts the music’s ideals of hope and dignity. Bearden (1911 – 1988) strongly believed in the blues message that hardships would transform into happiness, and that life would ultimately prevail.
