Storm Thorgerson signed Syd Barrett prints auctions finish today Print E-mail

Storm Thorgerson signed Syd Barrett print auctionsThis afternoon, the pair of very special, and rare, Syd Barrett related Storm Thorgerson prints on eBay will be coming to the end of their auction period. The auctions are due to finish just after 4pm UK time.

In each of the two special auctions, there is an authentic, and personally signed, Storm Thorgerson fine art print. These are being sold by Syd Barrett's sister Rosemary Breen through us (with the approval of OneFifteen, the management team who look after Syd's affairs) with all the money raised being used by Rosemary for charitable causes.

Both are signed to Rosemary by the late Storm, and both are pieces of artwork he created in tribute to Syd. The first, for 2010's "An Introduction to Syd Barrett", was created by Storm for the following reasons. "Firstly, to be vivid and colourful to reflect Syd's creative imagination. Secondly, to be varied and diverse, which is why there are illustrations to all his songs, and thirdly to hint at the darker, sadder side of Syd's life, hence the mirror which is not a mirror, the feather trees of autumn, and the escaping swan, breaking free from the confines of upbringing and education".

The second fine art print is officially known as Tribute to Syd Barrett, but also known as 'S' for Syd, and initially (as Storm has written in pencil under the image), Green Doors. It was created by Storm for The City Wakes, a tribute event for his late friend Syd that was held in Cambridge 2008.

Both are handsigned by Storm and he has hand-numbered it to Rosemary as edition 1 of 1. There are no others in this edition for each print, making them very special. They are also framed.

An item such as this would grace any Syd Barrett/Pink Floyd fan's collections, as well as benefitting some great causes. With Storm sadly no longer with us, this now sold-out, high quality print will never again be available signed by the man himself, and with it having been gifted to Syd's sister, it makes it even more special. It would also be a wonderful Christmas present for the Floyd fan in your life.

With just a few hours left of the auction, you will need to get your bids in now! Good luck to all of you bidding on these very unusual, and special, items.
