Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Original black and white poster, ca. 1960, with hand gouache coloring by the unidentified artist, signed in blue ink by Louis Armstrong, probably one of the largest signatures he ever signed and almost certainly the largest signed portrait of the great Satchmo in existence! Apparently obtained at the Morris Civic Theatre in South Bend, IN in 1963. In a large recent wood frame under UV-plexiglass. Some creases to the poster, but really in great shape overall. About 36 x 30 inches without the frame!The artwork is very likely the work of celebrated jazz illustrator David Stone Martin. His work graced many of the Verve, Mercury, Clef etc. covers of the 1950s and the present example, though apparently not from a published album, is highly reminiscent of those Martin designed for Lionel Hampton, Billie Holiday, Count Basie.
