MILES DAVIS: THE COLLECTED ARTWORK. Scott Gutterman. Insight Editions, San Rafael, 2013. 204 pp. with 168 ills. (155 col.). 29 x 29 cm. ISBN 9781608872237 In English.
Publisher's description: One of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century, Miles Davis was a man of many talents. Around 1980, he turned to sketching and painting... This hobby quickly turned into a serious passion, and Davis approached it with the same obsessive creativity he applied to music. The result is an impressive archive of unique and evocative visual work showcasing the varied skill of this legendary artist. Throughout the 1980s, Davis studied regularly with New York painter Jo Gelbard, developing a distinct graphic style. Incorporating bright colors and geometric shapes, his art is reminiscent of work by Pablo Picasso as well as African tribal art, the historical influences he cited during occasional interviews on the subject. Author Scott Gutterman sat down with Miles Davis himself before he died in 1991 and the artist's own commentary accompanies this remarkable showcase of his work.
