This magnificent poster for a cancelled Family Dog show at the Avalon is described by noted concert poster expert and historian Eric King as “The quintessential psychedelic poster”! The central image is borrowed from a  19th century painting by Viennese Painter  Franz Von Stuck . This image is a reoccurring theme in the Avalon series with this being its first use. Because this show was canceled this poster was produced JUST ONCE. No reprints are available which insures constant demand for the FIRST (and only) PRINTINGS of this hugely popular design. We have tracked 3 recent examples that have appeared at auction all with CGC grading. A 9.8 brought $1322 on 6/16/16 a 9.6 brought $1375 on 6/24/16 and a 9.8 brought $1381 on 11/8/16.

Estimate $1000-$1500
