Signed by Jerry on the verso.
Acrylic on paper, matted, glazed and framed; light warping to paper.
One of at least two original renderings of the Dylan & The Dead artwork created for the 1986/1987 tour and live album of the same name, featuring Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead. Griffin often did more than one version of major pieces to play around with shading and highlights. This particular rendering is not the published version, but was probably the runner-up, as it was gifted directly to Jerry Garcia by Rick Griffin.
Together with a "Bob Dylan & Grateful Dead" poster, designed and photographed by Herb Greene. Signed "HGreene" in lower, right margin, with "c 1987 Grateful Dead Productions" in lower left margin. Glazed and framed. In good condition.

Provenance: letter from Annette Flowers, describing how Jerry signed the reverse of the image and gifted it to her

19 x 24 in. (artwork); 16 x 20 in. (photograph); 16 x 20 in. (poster)
