This poster is signed by the artist Robert E. Brown!

 

It's always a treat for us when we have an opportunity to offer a very rare historical Pink Floyd poster, and this example by artist Robert E. Brown is SIGNED, and in amazing MUSEUM QUALITY condition! 

 

Artist Rob Brown designed this beautiful, intricate image for this Salt Lake show. Brown did illustration work in YELLOW DOG COMICS #15 underground comix, and his work appeared in the first four (of five) issues of PROMETHEAN ENTERPRISES (Published in the SF Bay Area, between 1969 and 1974), an early underground comic fanzine that featured the work of R. Crumb, Rick Griffin, Victor Moscoso, Robert Williams, Spain Rodriguez, Rick Shubb, Bob Zoell and others). In addition, he created multiple front covers and strips for the Berkeley Barb (an infamously well known & notorious S.F. Bay Area underground newspaper) in the late 60's. He is also noted for authoring & illustrating the incredible "Dragon World" full color hardbound children's book in 2005, featuring 68 paintings of unique Dragons of all sorts. You can "look inside" the DRAGON WORLD book to see all of Rob Brown's whimsical Dragon paintings here.

 

By spring of 1970, David Gilmour had come into his own within the band and their live performances throughout their US spring tour were quickly becoming legendary. In early May, their spaceship landed at the Terrace Ballroom located on Main Street in Salt Lake City Utah. Originally called Coconut Grove when it opened in the 1930's, this ballroom would come to host shows in the sixties and seventies by popular bands like The Doors, Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead and more. It's location was surrounded by Mormons, few of which were interested in being part of a young peoples psychedelic movement, therefore posters from this venue seem to be extra hard to find. They were printed in very small quantities of 500, which makes them extremely rare these days, in ANY condition.

 

Examples of this poster in lesser condition have sold in the past for around $800 in other public auctions, so we would estimate the value of this item to far exceed $1000. This is tied for the finest quality we have ever handled of this highly sought after issue. In February, an example in similar condition that was NOT signed reached $1020 in our auction. This piece is SIGNED by the artist! Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot. There is no doubt this poster will increase in value over the years considering how rare Terrace Ballroom posters are. Bid early and don't let this one get away!
