LONDON.- The directors of Masterpiece Art announced Bold As Love Celebrating Hendrix, an exhibition commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the iconic musician, singer and songwriter.

The show is comprised of rare photographs of Hendrix — some never seen before — taken by acclaimed photographers including Ed Caraeff, Baron Wolman, Gered Mankowitz, David Montgomery (UK debut of his works), Ulvis Alberts and the late Charles Everest.

Accompanying the photographs are two sculptures by Guy Portelli entitled Hey Joe and Wight Spirit — a large-scale glass mosaic panel which features the handprints of more than 80 musicians who performed at the 1970 Isle of Wight festival, including the handprint of Hendrix himself which Portelli mapped via the iconic ‘hand on face’ photograph taken by Baron Wolman.




In addition, the gallery is presenting the original Isle of Wight 1970 WEM speaker system used by Hendrix during his last major performance on British soil, including Hendrix’s personal fender neck headstock pieces and Univibe effects pedal.

Says Alex Cousens, Executive Gallery Manager and Sales Director at Masterpiece Art: ‘We’re honoured to be marking the fiftieth anniversary of Hendrix’s untimely passing — which took place only a few streets away from where we are situated — with an exhibition of rare photographs of the icon by some of the world’s leading photographers. We are especially pleased to provide a further tribute through two astonishing works by Guy Portelli, as well as original equipment used by Hendrix at the seminal 1970 Isle of Wight festival, his final performance on British soil.’
