Lot 7245: Exceptional vintage glossy 8 x 10 Grossman Glotzer Management publicity photo of Joplin in a loose-fitting shirt with her shoulders shrugged and a smile on her face, signed in the lower right of the image in black ballpoint. Light toning and tack holes to border edges (easily matted out), otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. This superb image was captured by Avedon during a photo shoot in Joplin's hometown of Port Arthur, Texas, on August 28, 1969—just two weeks after her performance at Woodstock. A rare signed photograph that truly embodies Joplin's carefree essence.
