About the Artwork:
Jean-Michel Basquiat, Horn Players, 1983
This artwork pays tribute to renowned horn players Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Parker, with his alto saxophone, is depicted on the left, while Gillespie and his trumpet are on the right. Recognized as some of the finest jazz musicians, their bebop style has greatly influenced modern jazz. The painting also references Parker's famous 1946 jazz standard “Ornithology.” Jean-Michel Basquiat, a passionate jazz enthusiast and musician, showcases in this piece the connection between his spontaneous painting style and the creative process of jazz composition.
