Framed Kane Prints

Art Kane (1925 – 1995) was born in New York City. He was a music and fashion photographer who was active from the 1950s through the early 1990s. Kane created many portraits of contemporary musicians, including Aretha Franklin, Sonny and Cher, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison, Frank Zappa, the Rolling Stones, The Who and Janis Joplin. During the World War II, Kane served in The Ghost Army, an unusual deception unit known as an incubator for many young artists. At age 26, he became the art director for Seventeen Magazine - one of a major publication’s youngest art directors. Kane began to explore his passion for photography, eventually studying under Alexey Brodovitch, the legendary photographer. In 1958, Kane got an assignment that would throw him into the limelight as a photographer. He assembled fifty seven legendary jazz musicians, for Esquire magazine in Harlem. This photograph would eventually become the basis for a documentary, “A Great Day in Harlem.” Kane’s works were experimental and provocative yet playful, and sometimes they were rejected by magazines for irreverence or nudity. Of his portraiture Kane said: "You have to own people... twist them, grab them, into what you want to say about them." He also said that he always considered himself a literate photographer, an illustrator interested in producing images that reflect the essence of an idea. Kane wanted to interpret the human scene rather than simply record it. Today, his art, especially the framed Art Kane art are much sought after by collectors worldwide. In 1995, when he was 69 years old, he committed suicide by shooting himself.
