Glaser places his haunting image over a quote celebrating the snow leopard's magnificent nature. Barely tamed by the art of the portrait, the vibrant colors evoke the cat's glowing eyes and fiery freedom.
In a witty riff on the well-known Thomas Gainsborough portrait, Glaser portrays this pop-rock group responsible for such hits as "Do You Believe in Magic" and "Summer In The City" as a quartet of Blue Boys with their eponymous spoons instead of heads.
In this announcement for a concert at Lincoln Center's Philharmonic Hall, Glaser's stylized portrait of the revered rock-and-roll singer features his trademark wide smile and his name on the diagonal over his dark shades. Glaser also created a poster for jazz musician Masakela's solo appearance at Philharmonic Hall around the same time.
Although most of Glaser's posters are for cultural events or institutions, this commission was occasioned by the bicentennial of the United States Constitution. A blocky profile of blind justice dominates the design. The panel below it has a vague flavor of Grecian columns, suggesting classical virtues and Parthenon-style courthouse architecture.
