If you buy it I will be so envious!!! But, you know, a good kind of envious. You think you'd be able to afford something like that?

To me it sounds fake. From reading the description, it sounds like the guy just took info. from a Syd Barrett book. Then again, his feedback score shows him to be honest. :? It would be nice if he mentioned his friends name and offered a COA or something. Personally, I wouldn't buy it. If I did, I would go to the auction in November and observe the artwork KNOWN to be Syd's and compare. Perhaps get some verification from Rosemary at a small price?

He was often a fan of geometric art, so this ties in with that. But the authenticity is still a question!

I'd like to see some of his art made available as posters. That wouold at least make it a little more accessable to the rest of us.

I wonder if it would be wrong for me to buy a painting, get a professional scan done and sell posters for a couple of quid? Mmmmm. :o

It would be perfectly legal seeing how you would own the rights to the artwork.Do it Keith.

I for one certainly do not think so! I would love to hang a Barrett print in my living room!!!

You'd have to sell off your parents' house or something to obtain this, though!

I really want one of his bicycles. :(
