Milton Glaser

The Russian Tea Room Welcomes the Newport Jazz Festival

$300.00

Year: 1972

Size: 24 x 37 inches

Glaser's relationship with the Russian Tea Room, a landmark haunt next to New York's Carnegie Hall, began when owner Faith Gordon Stewart asked him to redesign the restaurant's logo and menus. A memorable program of graphic communications followed. This example celebrates the arrival of the Newport Jazz Festival-a summer series of jazz concerts, originally held in Newport, Rhode Island, that moved its venue to New York City around this time. Against a background of psychedelically-striped and checked candy pastels, the silhouetted figure of a Russian Cossack pours vodka into the throat of a saxophone to lubricate the player's performance.
