David Bowie – Museum Exhibited 1966 Original Photograph
An extraordinary David Bowie collectible–the actual 1966 print of a very young David Bowie pouring a drink that was exhibited in the 2009 exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery “Beatles to Bowie: The 60’s Exposed.” This vintage 1966 print of an image by Cyrus Andrews (who also photographed The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, among others) is from the collection of Jon Savage, noted English music writer, cultural critic and co-curator of the “Beatles to Bowie.” He lent this photograph to the exhibit and traded it to us earlier this year. “Beatles to Bowie” was a truly incredible show, which we were lucky enough to see while in the UK. The National Portrait Gallery (http://www.npg.org.uk/about/organisation.php ) is an extremely prestigious museum, which holds the most extensive collections of portraits in the world. Savage’s letter of authenticity notes that this is an original print and was included in “Beatles to Bowie: The 60’s Exposed.” Included here is a copy of the exhibition’s catalog, authored by Jon Savage; it includes a full page reproduction of this actual print. A review of the exhibit can be seen here ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2009/oct/03/beatles-to-bowie-sixties-exposed .) The print measures 8″ x 10″ and is in excellent condition, with Cyrus Andrews’ copyright stamp and publication notes on the back. A truly rare and highly collectible David Bowie artifact from the early days of his long career.
