Description

Rafael Colón Hand Painted Violin (Turandot)

The artist Rafael Colón pays tribute to the Met’s production of Puccini’s Turandot. Details from the opera are dramatically featured 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

Turandot

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1926.

Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi.

Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere.
