About Basquiat Ligne Blanche Plate Horn Player (1983) – Limoges Porcelain
This Jean-Michel Basquiat Ligne Blanche Plate Horn Player (1983) is made Limoges porcelain and is based on the original work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, “The Horn Players” (1983). Despite the seeming disorder of the composition, however, it is clear that the main subjects of Horn Players are two famous jazz musicians the saxophonist Charlie Parker and the trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, who Basquiat has depicted in both linguistic and visual portraits. On the left of the canvas, the artist has drawn the figure of Parker, holding his saxophone which emits several hot pink musical notes and distorted waves of sound. We see Dizzy Gillespie in the right panel, who holds a silent instrument alongside his torso. The words “DOH SHOO DE OBEE” that float to the left of the figure’s head call to mind the scat (wordless improvisational) singing Gillespie often performed onstage.
