Original 1st printing (union logo 72, no "13" scratched into the plate) 14 x 20" concert poster for legendary beat-era comedian Lenny Bruce (his FINAL performances) appearing with the Mothers of Invention (featuring Frank Zappa) at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA from 6/24-25/1966.
Art by Wes Wilson with a photo by Edmund Shea, image is # 13 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series.
Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster has been professionally restored to near mint (A-) condition; tack/staple holes in all four corners have been filled in, the poster was washed to remove staining (brightening the borders) and there remains a slight moisture warp to the paper as a result, and there were a set of tape stains on the reverse that were cleaned/removed (slight shadows remain), but overall the piece looks absolutely STUNNING.
Absolutely FANTASTIC 1st printing specimen of this early Wes Wilson-designed Fillmore poster.
