The amazing album art of Mati Klarwein

A selection of Mati Klarwein's (1932-2002) 'visionary' paintings used for album covers. Bottom left is a painting intended for a Jimi Hendrix and Gil Evans album that was never finished. Above it is Klarwein's original painting for Santana's Annunciation; above the water melon on the left is a grinning self portrait of Klarwein.

The excellent website has the approval and participation of the Klarwein family.
