The estate of Timothy Leary announces a one-of-a-kind offering of a William Burroughs shot gun painting personally given to him by the artist.
It is the visit depicted in the header photo above - taken on Burroughs’ front porch in Kansas in 1987 - where Leary was introduced to the art Burroughs was creating in his studio.
Shortly thereafter, William gave him this piece as a gift, which resided in Tim's living room. (See Photo Below.)
The piece wasn't sold with Tim's other art in the Christie's auction in 1996 because it was on tour as part of a Los Angeles County Museum of Art Burroughs exhibit at the time.
