Holly Woodlawn - 1970 Autographed Limited Edition

In October 2015 the ailing Holly Woodlawn completed the final autograph session of her life. Seated on her hospital bed in her Hollywood assisted living facility (with breaks for cigarettes and pain medication), Woodlawn lipstick kissed each photo of an edition of 47 Jack Mitchell photographs and inscribed it, “Love, Holly.” When the project was completed after several hours, she said, “Thank you for taking me away from reality for a while; it felt great to be a star again.” Holly passed away just seven weeks later, on December 6, 2015.

The Photograph - Jack Mitchell’s photo session with Holly Woodlawn in September 1970 resulted in what Holly has said is her favorite photograph of herself. Posing nearly naked wrapped only in a huge cape made of black and white turkey feathers, Mitchell’s lighting captures Holly Woodlawn’s soulful feminine beauty. The Jack Mitchell photograph Holly selected for this edition was from the same session as the one chosen by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the Oscars tribute in February 2016.

This is a 13 x 19” archival black and white print on acid free Canon Pro Platinum paper with pigment ink rated as lasting 100 years when stored under archival conditions. It is individually numbered #/47 (from an estate edition of only 47 signed and kissed by Holly) and bears the Jack Mitchell estate embossed stamp on the lower left corner. It comes with an individual Certificate of Authenticity. Shipping is free to customers in the USA.

Holly was paid in October 2015 for signing this edition, and that money went to benefit the Holly Woodlawn Memorial Fund for Transgender Youth at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. The sale of this edition will benefit the Holly Woodlawn Memorial Fund for Transgender Youth at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Pricing of this exclusive edition will increase as the edition sells out.
