Jazz.com is delighted to present the music-inspired artwork of painter Jerry Blank.

Jerry Blank's tribute series The Art of Music captures the movement and sounds of the vibrating beats and rhythms of America and its music greats throughout the decades. Blank's works are distinguished by their vibrant colors and bold stokes, and evoke the jazz spirit of the artists portrayed. Each work pays a symbolic and historical tribute to the jazz legends such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Billie Holiday, and others.

Blank aims to translate the character and musical soul of each artist into visual form. His raison d'etre is to provoke and inspire the viewers' visual memory of these great performers and their music and also to pique the curiosity of a younger generation with these grand salutes to past legends.

His art finds inspiration in the French Impressionist movement and a recent year long sabbatical in Paris prolifically yielded over fifty paintings of old world and European inspirations. Blank's watercolors, acrylics and oils can be found private and public collections throughout North America and Europe. They are currently featured in galleries in New York, West Palm Beach, Hilton Head, Chicago, Houston, San Jose, and Las Vegas.
