When speaking of Romare Bearden， one is tempted to say， “A great Black American artist.” The subject matter of Bearden’s collages is certainly Black. Portrayals of the folk of Mecklenburg County， North Carolina， whom he remembers from early childhood， of the jazz musicians and tenement roofs of his Harlem days， of Pittsburgh steelworkers， and his reconstruction of classical Greek myths in the guise of the ancient Black kingdom of Benin， attest to this. In natural harmony with this choice of subject matter are the social sensibilities of the artist， who remains active today with the Cinque Gallery in Manhattan， which he helped found and which is devoted to showing the work of minority artists.
Then why not call Bearden a Black American artist？ Because ultimately this categorization is too narrow. “What stands up in the end is structure，” Bearden says. “What I try to do is amplify. If I were just creating a picture of a farm woman from back home， it would have meaning to her and people there. But art amplifies itself to something universal.”
Bearden’s social sensibilities and the subject matter of his collages are mentioned by the author in order to explain
A.why one might be tempted to call Bearden a Black American artist.
B.why Bearden cannot be readily categorized.
C.why Bearden’s appeal is thought by many to be ultimately universal.
D.how deeply an artist’s artistic creations are influenced by the artist’s social conscience.
E.what makes Bearden unique among contemporary Black American artists.答案：A
B：为什么Bearden不能被轻易的分类。这里所谓“不能轻易分类”指的是不能仅仅把Bearden当成黑人艺术家，这说的是第二段的内容，因此B选项定位错误。C：为什么Bearden的吸引力被很多人认为是普遍化的。本选项粗略来看，有一个universal便知是第二段内容，定位错误。精确来看，C选项还错在“many”，因为第二段只是Bearden一个人表达自己的观点，认为自己是universal，文章并没有说“很多人”认为Bearden是universal。D：一个艺术家的艺术创作在多么深层次上被艺术家的社会意识给影响。参照之前的文章，本选项犯了“混”的错误。E：什么使得Bearden在同时代的美国黑人艺术家中很独特。本文没有讨论Bearden独不独特的问题，属于原文没有。因此本题正确答案为A，符合in order to题型定位到原文3s版本的做法。
