Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1911, Romare Bearden moved with his family to New York City in 1915, where in the 1930s he attended New York University, studied art with George Grosz at the Art Students League, and joined artists' groups associated with the Harlem Renaissance. While maintaining his strong connection with New York, Bearden frequently returned to his grandparents' house in North Carolina for the summer, and memories of the South were to inspire many of his works, such as Southern Courtyard.
