Louis Daniel Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), nicknamed "Satchmo", "Satch", and "Pops", was an American trumpeter and vocalist. He was among the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades and several eras in the history of jazz. He received numerous accolades including the Grammy Award for Best Male Vocal Performance for Hello, Dolly! in 1965, as well as a posthumous win for the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1972, and the induction into the National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame in 2017.
I had a solo show of 20 drawings of authors, all done in pencil and Conte. The show was a success! It was tons of fun to draw them. Since then I have also done Jimi Hendrix, Louis Armstrong, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Lou Reed, Syd Barrett, Dimebag Darrell, and Gary Numan. I have prints of most of them available.
This is a signed 8" x 10" signed print made from a pencil and Conte drawing on toned tan paper. The print is on archival matte photo paper.
The original is not available.
