    Description

    Miles Davis Signed Original Artwork with The Art of Miles Davis Book. An undated and untitled work, rendered in mixed media - likely colored marker and colored pencil - on paper, abstract in concept. Artwork measures approximately 26.25" x 29.5" (sight), signed "Miles!" in colored marker by the legendary Jazz trumpeter at the lower-left of the image. Matted and framed under glass by the artist to an overall 33" x 36". Includes soft-bound coffee table art book, The Art of Miles Davis, which features an image on page five of Davis standing before this very work. Art is in Fine condition, with minor toning due to age, and light scattered foxing. Book measures approximately 15" x 11" x .5" and is in Fine condition.

    This piece was obtained by an art collector/Miles Davis fan, directly from the Jazz icon at an exhibition of his work at the Tunnel nightclub in New York City, circa 1989-90.

    Much like his music, the art of Miles Davis was challenging and ever-changing. This piece is an abstract, but like many of his works, displays the feminine form shifting and swirling, almost appearing as smoke or flowers. A breathtaking glimpse into the mind of one of the all-time Jazz greats.
