Inscribed portrait photograph.[c.1960] Stock Code: 142679
Striking inscribed portraitStrong portrait photograph inscribed by Steinbeck lower right, "For Bob Keane, with best, John Steinbeck"; an excellent image, Steinbeck, in shirt and tie, sporting a pin-striped jacket, looking a little quizzically to his right. It is tempting to speculate that the recipient may have been the writer's fellow Californian, the pioneering record producer Bob Keane (1922-2009), who worked with an extraordinary roster of performers, including Frank Zappa, Ritchie Valens, Sam Cooke, and Glen Campbell.
Original silver gelatin print (258 x 204 mm), mounted on heavy card.
A few light, largely peripheral, abrasions otherwise very good. Presented in a black stained oak frame with conservation acrylic glazing.
