Published by Walther König, Köln.
A book of funny, strange, enraged, grotesque, brilliant and affectionate drawings by jazz musician and actor John Lurie.
Although Lurie has been making his naughty and often Surrealistic drawings for 20 years, it was not until 2004 that he began to exhibit them--and then to instant acclaim. In 2005, the New York Times critic Roberta Smith wrote, "music's loss may turn out to be art's gain."
In Learn to Draw, 65 black-and-white line drawings are printed across from enigmatically hilarious descriptive titles, such as "wolf serenading asses," "three car salesmen think about the same cat," or "Rose had a barn hat."
