Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Rare Charlie Watts collectible item. Gallery-Framed Vintage Photographic Print. A framed and authenticated copy of Jill Furmanovsky's "Charlie Watts, Halcyon Hotel, March 1991". Limited Edition of 30 numbered, stamped, and signed copies of the beautifully toned silver-gelatin print. As such, it is one of the smallest limitations of a vintage print ever produced. A magnificent production by Jill Furmanovsky: Oversize format. Museum-quality fiber-print, printed directly from the original negative. The tones are so rich and warm that they must be seen to be believed. Full framed size is 22 X 27 inches. Numbered, stamped, and signed by the photographer. Presents, in its ultimate collectible format, Jill Furmanovsky's "Charlie Watts, Halcyon Hotel, March 1991". The single most celebrated photograph by Furmanovsky, possibly the most celebrated photographer who specializes in portraits of rock music celebrities. The classic profile of a pensive, serene-looking Charlie Watts is surely one of the greatest portraits ever taken of a rock star, particularly one associated with the most Dionysian version of popular music. "I entered the London Observer's Portrait Award with this picture and won First Prize in 1992. To my great delight, Charlie wrote to congratulate me. Representing the bedrock of rock, Charlie Watts has aged immaculately" (Jill Furmanovsky) . Artists photographed in her 30-year career include many of the biggest names in rock music: Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Eric Clapton, Blondie, The Police, Led Zeppelin, The Pretenders, Bob Dylan, and Oasis. She has also made music videos for Oasis and The Pretenders. Furmanovsky's books, "The Moment: 25 Years of Rock Photography" and "Was There Then: A Photographic Journey" are seminal works in the genre. An absolute "must-have" title for Jill Furmanovsky, Charlie Watts, The Rolling Stones, and rock music collectors. <b><i> This original silver-gelatin print is one of the Limited Edition of 30 numbered, stamped, and signed copies, indicated as such (Number 15) . It is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen and stamped on recto by Jill Furmanovsky. This is a great photographic print. As far as we know, this is one of only two copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The only other copy available online is from RockArchive London for 6000 British Pounds/GP (between 7500 and 8000 US Dollars, depending on the day, post-Brexit) . As one of the most serious and respected dealers in rock music memorabilia, they are not kidding. Don't take our word for it, look them up online. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of The Jane Brown Observer Portrait Award for this Charlie Watts portrait in 1992 and "Woman of the Year for Music" in 1998. One of the finest photographers of rock music of our time. A fine collectible print. (SEE ALSO "ROD STEWART" FRAMED GALLERY PRINT IN OUR CATALOG).
