We acquired this directly from Morrison's widow, Martha, and will note this in our written lifetime guarantee of authenticity. We have never seen another example of this ultra rare Warhol/Velvets collectible. When we acquired it it had been glued down to another piece of paper, but we had a professional paper conservator remove it, touch up some minor flaws and back it with archival rice paper–it now looks superb. 8 1/2" x 11 3/8". As rare as it gets, with incredible provenance. SOLD
