Jerry Garcia's Grateful Dead art for sale
Prints of artwork by Jerry Garcia are to be made commercially available by the late singer's estate, reports Rolling Stone.
According to Garcia's website, limited edition prints of an etching called "The Guys" - featuring the Grateful Dead in their Nineties' incarnation - will be on sale from July 22.
Says the website, "We are pleased to announce 'The Guys', a unique etching by Jerry Garcia published as a limited edition, hand pulled photogravure to commemorate what would have been Jerry's seventieth year. The original drawing is a quickly sketched, incisive portrait of all the members of the Grateful Dead as it was in the 1990's – Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Vince Welnick, Bob Weir, and Jerry Garcia. At the request of the Jerry Garcia Family, six additional impressions have been pulled as gifts for the six members of the Grateful Dead and their families."
" The Guys" is a 6" x 9" image printed on 11" x 15" Somerset, 100% rag paper, and each print includes a certificate of authenticity signed and number by Garcia's daughter Trixie with the Garcia Family seal.
