Rafael Colón Hand Painted Violin (Porgy & Bess)

The artist Rafael Colón pays tribute to the Met’s historic new production of the purely American opera Porgy and Bess. Merging the styles of jazz, blues and Broadway, the title couple feature dramatically on this hand etched and hand painted violin.

Each beautifully painted, collectible violin is one of a kind. It is hand drawn, wood burned and hand painted on front and back by the artist in his NYC studio using oil, acrylic and marker paints. The violin comes with a bow, a case and a display stand and can be displayed on a shelf, piano or any flat surface.

Rafael Colón’s work is in the collection of the Queen of Sweden, The Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore, the Tony Hawk Foundation and others. His art has been featured at El Museo del Barrio and at The Asia Society New York City.

History

The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess

One of America’s favorite operas returns to the Met for the first time in nearly 30 years. James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront, vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants.

“If you’re going to stage Gershwin’s opera, this is how,” raved the Guardian when the new production premiered in London in 2018.

David Robertson conducts a dynamic cast, featuring the sympathetic duo of Eric Owens and Angel Blue in the title roles and an all-star ensemble that includes Golda Schultz, Latonia Moore, Denyce Graves, Frederick Ballentine, Alfred Walker, and Ryan Speedo Green.
