Purvis Young has been recognized as one of the masters of this broadly defined nonacademic genre of ‘outsider art’. His work possesses a singularly raw form of aesthetic power and through the decades he has developed an astounding¬† oeuvre, out of which we were able to acquire a range of true highlights, in the late 90-s, while we visited Miami.

One of them is the painting above, capturing the vibrant atmosphere, the heat of the night as a Piano Player and a Harmonica Player (portrait) play to the audience metaphorical symbolized as stars, which the musicians try to reach with and through their performance.

The painting will be auctioned on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at Slotin Folk Art’s Self-Taught Art Masterpiece Sale in cooperation with Live Auctioneers.

Thank you very much for your interest in our offer.
