“I’ve always been a huge music fan and thought that it would be a personal challenge to depict some of the great music legends that I have always admired,” states fine artist Marc Lacourciere, who will be unveiling his latest, and perhaps greatest, painting titled, Fender Legends, on board this week’s Rock Legends Cruise III.
Lacourciere, considered one of the world’s most sought after fine artists, has combined his passion for music with an extraordinary artistic talent to create the ultimate expression of musical performance art.
Over the years, he’s painted everyone from Aerosmith to ZZ Top… many a rock notable from A to Z, including the Beatles, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones.
It’s now the beginning of 2015 and to kick off the year, Marc has announced his unique collaboration with the iconic musical instrument manufacturer, Fender, and his new Fender Legends painting honoring the greats.
Since 1946, Fender has defined the signature sound of music.
With its illustrious history, their instruments have touched and transformed music worldwide, transcending into almost every genre of music, making it a cultural icon.
Two years in the making, Marc Lacourciere’s Fender Legends painting features music pioneer Leo Fender and the following guitarists:
Stevie Ray Vaughn
There will be 32 highly-collectible individually embellished artist proof (Exhibition Edition) canvases in all, numbering 1 through 32, each measuring 40″ x 53″.
All licensed prints come framed with a Certificate of Authenticity (C.O.A.) and begin at $7500 (S & H not included).
What makes these prints even more collectible is the fact that each piece features an individual sketch on the back of one of the artists featured, making each truly unique.
In addition to the 32 prints offered to the public, Marc created a special Leo Fender print (with sketch) numbered “O” that is already spoken for.
As the official artist for all three Rock Legends Cruises (www.rocklegendscruise.com), Marc will be donating partial proceeds from this week’s onboard auction (and partial proceeds from sales through March 1, 2015) to the Native American Heritage Association, the charitable organization hosting, and benefiting from, the Cruise.
On the original Rock Legends Cruise in the fall of 2011, he did a painting of ZZ Top, the featured headliner that was followed by a painting of Foreigner who headlined RLC II in January 2013.
This year, Marc will be displaying his painting of Alice Cooper, who will not only be rocking the boat but signing one of Marc’s Welcome To My Nightmare prints for charity.
In addition to the Fender painting, Marc will be unveiling two other new art pieces on board RLC III including a non-music painting titled, Spiritual Harmony.
Orders can be placed before or after the cruise for any of Marc’s fine art prints by calling 519.735.7779.
