The Rolling Stones at Altamont, 1969

By Robert Altman
About the image
An entire plot is revealed in this iconic shot of the Rolling Stones during their infamous set at Altamont. Dramatic stage lighting particularly spotlights the calm before the maelstrom, as Mick Jagger warily keeps his eyes on the agitated Hells Angels surrounding him.  

"This photo has become an icon of a seminal event of which John Lennon observed, 'The bubble burst,' and instead of a great party it signaled the beginning of the end of Flower Power itself." - Robert Altman 

Release Notes:
Robert Altman's photographs were printed in the San Francisco Bay Area to order. The photographs were signed and numbered by him and buyers receive a certificate of authenticity following delivery.

Collector's Notes:
Robert Altman donated his photographic archive and copyrights to the UC Berkeley Bancroft Library in 2018, so these photographs will no longer be produced. Any remaining inventory of signed photographs are all that remains. Please contact us for the latest availability and prices!
