Ligne Blanche Basquiat Plate "Horn Players"
Designed by Ligne Blanche, this Limoges porcelain plate features the 1983 work, "Horn Players", by Jean Michel Basquiat.The painting is an homage to jazz musicians Charlie Parker (on the right) and Dizzy Gillespie (left).
Basquiat was an avid jazz fan and a musician himself. "Horn Players" shows off the relationship between Basquiat's improvisational style and the alchemy of jazz. The painting collects visual and textual jazz references and deploys them like a kind of visual music.
