Description

Jimi Hendrix

Gered Mankowitz Proof Lithograph. One of the most iconic images ever taken of Hendrix was captured through the lens of Gered Mankowitz in 1967. The vibrant, multi-colored 21 x 29 silk-screened composite lithograph is marked as '1st Proof-Blue' and signed in the lower border by the photographer. Matted and framed to an overall size of 28.25 x 38.5. In fine condition. Acquired in 1987 in London, by the consignor, a friend of Mankowitz. At the time, the photographer was making prints and testing colors—this particular blue-tinted edition of this image was never marketed. Accompanied by an original MCA Records invitation to the Jimi Hendrix Exhibition Preview Party at the Ambassador Gallery on April 7, 1993 picturing the final Hendrix image made for mass production. RRAuction COA.
