Vintage Dr. Gonzo.....Lexington, KT : 1995 Stock Code: 146516
NotesEdition of 500. Signed in pencil lower right by Ralph Steadman and signed lower left by Hunter S. Thompson, numbered lower centre. This print was created to commemorate, to the day, the 25th anniversary of Steadman and Thompson's first collaboration, covering the 1970 Kentucky Derby for Scanlan's magazine. This piece and The Sheriff are the only examples of Steadman's "Gonzo Art" that Thompson ever signed. Steadman's original illustration of this image first appeared on page 79 of Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The majority of these prints were signed by both Steadman and Thompson on 6 May 1995 (the 121st "Run for the Roses", i.e. Kentucky Derby) on the trunk of "The Shark", Thompson's giant Cadillac convertible, at Thompson's Owl Farm in Woody Creek, CO.
