This is a black and white photograph of Robert LaVigne. LaVigne stands in front of a large wall sculpture wearing a short-sleeve button-down shirt and slacks. He points upward holding a cigarette in his right hand; his arm partially obscures his face. LaVigne drapes his left arm across his chest while holding a tambourine at his side.

Micaëla Gallery printout:"ARTIST ROBERT LAVIGNE IN HIS STUDIO / San Francisco 1965 / Robert LaVigne is one of the few Beat artists that was aligned with the Beat poets. Besides his own work he did poster art and graphics for Allen Ginsberg and others. In this photograph he is talking about his huge nude painting of Peter Orlovsky hanging on the wall behind me. The next time I viewed his painting of Orlovsky, thirty years later, it was hanging in the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York."
