Recommended by Rebecca (Gallery Manager):
"Somebody Stole My Broken Heart is a perfect encapsulation of jazz and live music performance, from the colors to the composition to the texture. You can see, feel, and almost hear the music from the vibrations in blue, which have an exuberance that matches the musicians. The singer's arms are outstretched as she lets everything go and pours it into her performance, eyes closed. Energy radiates from the bright yellow shared by the dress, cymbals and saxophone, the small dashes of green throughout and the rich red background. Ringgold captures jazz in a way that only an artist born in Harlem in 1930 can."
