Jerry Garcia Auction To Be Held


An auction will be held on May 8 at Bonhams in San Francisco to sell off some of Jerry Garcia's personal artwork, guitars and even his Harley motorcycle.

One of the rarest items from the Grateful Dead singer includes one of five oil paintings by Garcia from 1959, which was originally given to his brother. The estimated price of the painting, which "depicts a blue-yellow sky, pink hills and multi-colored terrain," is expected to fetch $100,000 to $150,000, according to Artdaily.

Additional pieces of art said to be sold for high prices include two sketchbooks with 30 unseen original images, a set of airbrush originals, and the original cover art for the band's Europe 72 double live album.

Some of the instruments and other items up for grabs are a Takamine guitar, an Ibanez guitar, and his a 1983 Harley Davidson.

There will be an auction preview in New York from April 11 to 16 and one in San Francisco from May 4 to 7.
