Jazz Fest Poster 1990
Sixteenth in the series by Louise Mouton. The banner of notes diagonally dissecting the image is the chorus of the song, "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans." Above the banner is a collage of items from the by-gone days of 78's and bits of New Orleans architecture. On the lower left is Kid Sheik, 88 years young at the time of the print's release, whose trumpet traced the arc of New Orleans Jazz almost from its birth.
2,500 artist signed and numbered 12,500 unsigned and numbered. 20" x 33". 500 prints were signed by the artist and George "Kid Sheik" Colar, the performer portrayed.
