In 1977, African-American artist Romare Bearden (1912–1988) created a landmark series of collages and watercolors based on Homer's classic work of Western literature, The Odyssey. The artist's Odysseus Series expanded his earlier explorations of historical narratives and artistic genres by presenting his own reinterpretation of the subject. Through approximately 50 collages, Bearden recasts Homer's celebrated heroes and villains as black people, transforming the epic poem into a poignantly universal story. As the artist stated, "All of us are on a kind of odyssey. And I think this is what makes the story so lasting, so classic, and applicable to everyone."
