An original Frank Zappa painting
Oil on board, signed and dated ("Zappa 61") at lower right. Entitled Horny, depicting a pair of brass instruments that Zappa instead to symbolize a man and a woman. Zappa's short career as a visual artist lasted from 1958 until 1961, at which point his music career started to gain steam and left him little time for other pursuits. In the 1960s, this painting was displayed in the rehearsal studio of Zappa's famed Laurel Canyon cabin where he formed his band, The Mothers of Invention. The rehearsal studio later moved to a building on Hollywood Blvd., and this painting was rehung there before being given to the present owner in 1972. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the consignor.
23 1/4 x 64 in.
