This is an art print of a painting tribute to Bob Dylan featuring his 1949 Martin 00-17 Acoustic which (the story goes) he got in 1959 in an even trade for his electric guitar, which he had no use for at the time. The 00 size was probably recommended to him by his friend and hero Woody Guthrie. The background is the Gaslight Café, which was a true hot spot for folk players and beatnik poets in NY at the time of his discovery (1961-62). History notes that due to the café’s odd vent system, they were unable to applaud by clapping due to the noise carrying to annoyed neighbors, so they snapped their fingers.
These prints are fantastic conversation makers and make a great gift for family and friends. They look great on their own or stunning in a group.
