Thomas "89".It was created the same year as the imfamous Jass Fest art print of Fats Domino which holds the record for the highest resale value of an art poster .I checked to see either of these prints were available for purchase and found they are sold out. This is a rare find . The glass was broken when i bought it and i will take it to a framer to be replaced or i will remove it from the frame and sell it just as a print. The shipping cost will be adjusted accordingly. The print size is approx.25x27".Below is a copy of a write up about the artist.
Thomas and the New Orleans Jazz Festival have a long relationship dating back to 1977 when Thomas, an art student at Xavier University, was selected by his professor, along with other students, to exhibit their work in the Louisiana Craft area. He would first exhibit as a professional artist two years later, in 1979. For 12 years after that, Thomas was hired by the Jazz Festival and would utilize his talents to create murals and other works of art all around the Jazz Festival’s grounds. He did his first painting in Congo Square.
It was in 1989, however, that Thomas would shoot to local and national fame when he was asked to create the 20th Anniversary Poster for the Jazz Festival. Thomas selected Antoine “Fats” Domino as his subject. This was important for two reasons: 1. it gave birth to the “Jazz Fest Portrait Series,” featuring important musical luminaries from New Orleans; and 2. the poster would become the largest selling poster in Jazz Fest History, a position it still holds, as well as setting the record for the highest resale value of any Jazz Fest poster. It is still considered by many to be the best Jazz Festival poster ever done.
