(American, 1940-)


Sheet: 77.4 x 57.6 cm (30 1/2 x 22 11/16 in.)

Bequest of Frances P. Taft, Trustee of the Cleveland Museum of Art, 1973-2017 2017.205



Moe Brooker’s 1985 pastel, Shoutin´ calls to mind sound while also creating swatches of color that hover against denser background colors, like a horizon. Brooker’s love for jazz music percolates throughout the rhythm of the sheet, and the scribbles on the upper portion dance, like a jazz singer’s melodies made visible.
