Andy Warhol-Illustrated Blue Note Covers

Did you know that Andy Warhol did illustrations for a few of the Blue Note covers in the late 1950s when he was still working as a commercial artist and had not yet achieved any acclaim?  I am loving the one above.

Are you surprised to see something by Warhol in this expressionistic (and non-pop) style?  Doesn’t the drawing of the woman look very much like a Matisse drawing??  

I’ve just dived head-long into what might be aptly described as an obsession with Blue Note and especially the 1500 and early 4000 series covers art directed by Reid Miles and commonly featuring photography by Francis Wolff.

Many more to come, they are a rich visual history of graphic design, typography, photography, illustration, and the hard bop era of New York jazz…
