This piece elegantly depicts a mesmerizing Caribbean sunset and was created by Bearden in the 1980s from his studio in Saint Martin. Bearden found inspiration in the lush landscape of St. Martin, the ancestral home of his wife, Nanette Rohan. He and Nanette established a second residence there resulting in Bearden spending his most productive years there. Bearden is noted as stating that, for him, the Caribbean was critical as it relates to the arts. "Art will go where the energy is and I find a great deal of energy in the Caribbean. . . . It's like a volcano there; there's something unfinished underneath that still smolders." “Caribbean Sunset II” was been exhibited at the Reginald Lewis Museum in Baltimore, MD in 2018 and was also a part of an exhibition of works from the Bearden Foundation in New York, NY from December 2020 to March 2021.
