Oversize photograph of Marianne Faithfull by Bruce Weber, inscribed by Weber to Bruce in 1992
N.p. Bruce Weber, 1992. Oversize vintage photograph of singer Marianne Faithfull, taken by Bruce Weber in 1992. With Weber's rubber stamp on the verso, boldly inscribed across the entirety of same: "For M / I'm wild about you / Bruce / Bruce Weber / NYC 1992."
A stunning photograph, taken in the midst of what could be described as Faithfull's second reinvention. The first was in 1979, with "Broken English," an album that simultaneously prefigured and outlasted 1980s pop. The second was in 1987, with "Strange Weather," a dark, eerie, and utterly compelling collection of "new standards" arranged by Bill Frisell, featuring compositions by a wild range of songwriters from Lead Belly to Doc Pomus to Tom Waits, with detours to Faithfull's touchstones, including Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards.
11 x 14 inches. Fine.
