ÔAmerican BluesÕ is an Original Oil on Canvas work by contemporary artist Brian Jones. The piece is signed by the artist.

Contemporary artist Brian Jones is known for his ÔNew Pop ArtÕ, which takes the 1960s movement to task on its own terms: where the work of Warhol and Paolozzi, Liechtenstein and Johns, incorporated familiar images from mass culture, Jones incorporates their - by now iconic - artworks into his own, to push the possibilities of Pop for the twenty-first century.

Painted in 2011, ÔAmerican BluesÕ is a bold interpretation of the American flag, forming part of JonesÕ ÔGreat American FlagÕ series. ÒI didn't listen to anything except for Blues throughout the production of this painting,Ó says Jones. ÒFrom Robert Johnson and Bessie Smith, right through to Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker. A great excuse for a Blue-out.Ó Recalling the tactile flag paintings of Jasper Johns, JonesÕ take on the American flag reflects the tense racial politics that define the USA today. Smart, brilliant, and breathtakingly beautiful, ÔAmerican BluesÕ offers a bold new art for the twenty-first century.
