Jean-Michel Basquiat: Horn Players Plate

Regular price Regular price $150

This Limoges porcelain plate, made in France by Ligne Blanche, features a detail of the 1983 painting Horn Players by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

In this painting, Basquiat pays homage to the great saxophonist Charlie Parker (left) and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie (right). Parker’s legendary jazz standard “Ornithology,” recorded in 1946, is referenced in the middle section of the painting. Basquiat was an avid jazz listener and musician in his own right, and this work shows the relationship between his improvisational style of painting and the alchemy of jazz composition.
