This original artwork is SIGNED & doodled by the artist Stanley Mouse! This lot includes a Certificate of Authenticity from Mouse Studios! 

 

The artwork here was created at a time and place when the legendary Stanley Mouse was involved in producing eclectic album cover art for several bands through the late seventies and into the early eighties. Through it all, Mouse always continued to return to the Grateful Dead for graphics contributions. This is a preliminary drawing for the design layout he created for the Grateful Dead studio album "Go To Heaven" on Arista Records. It was only a short time after keyboardist Brent Mydland had joined the group. During summer of 1979, the Dead began recording new material in the studio for their forthcoming album, released the following year. We estimate this original art was produced in early 1980. 

 

Mouse's artistic achievements have been celebrated and displayed in major art museums such as The San Francisco Museum of Art, The Detroit Institute of Art, Boston Museum, The Smithsonian Institute, N.Y. Museum of Modern Art and many, many others. There is a singular word that is used very sparingly in the world of collectibles to describe THE most desirable of all rarities and that word is... PRICELESS. This word is ONLY used and applied to collectibles that are TRULY UNIQUE which literally means THERE IS NO PRICE. This amazing, one of a kind SIGNED piece of art comfortably fits this highly coveted category. As such, any estimate to its value can be deemed purely a guess.

 

The market, and the market alone, is capable of determining the true value of this one of kind piece of Grateful Dead history. No matter what this lot commands, it will definitely transform whichever collection in which it resides to World Class!
