Miles Davis’ Original Paintings & Drawings at London Exhibition

Jazz legend Miles Davis spent the last decade of his life creating swathes of drawings and paintings that for the most part have been kept away from the public gaze until now.

A new exhibition at Gallery 27 in London’s Mayfair will open on December 7 and is set to unveil his last remaining 100 original drawings and oil paintings.

As with his music, his artwork changed continually from rapid, motion-filled drawings of dancers and robots to his later more Tribal work in oils on canvas. In the early 80′s his muse was Giulia Trojer, from whom part of this collection derives. In the last few years of his life, alongside his last partner, Jo Gelbard, he turned to painting citing Picasso a great influence alongside his African heritage.”
