Mati Klarwein (1932–2002) was a major presence in the New York art scene, admired by everyone from Andy Warhol and Salvador Dalí to Jimi Hendrix and Jackie Onassis. His Pop-Surrealist universe of pantheistic religious harmony, sexual fertility and gender and racial unity gave visual expression to an era. Mati & the Music presents Klarwein’s 52 paintings that appeared on album covers, a body of work that began in the mid–1950s and continued for half a century. Many of the album covers were commissioned by the musicians themselves, most famously by Miles Davis for Bitches Brew and Live Evil and Carlos Santana for Abraxas. Others included Earth Wind & Fire, Buddy Miles and Gregg Allman. With the trim size of an LP album, Mati & The Music will appeal to lovers of music, graphic design and psychedelic art.
