        Dr. K" - Dwight Eugene "Doc" Gooden on the Billboard of The New York Skyline - photographed in 1985.

      Extra Large Vintage Print of the original Photograph on archival paper. Image: 35,5 cm x 36 cm / Framed: 60,5 cm x 71 cm. From the private library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan below the image. Beautifully framed. Dwight Eugene "Doc" Gooden (born November 16, 1964), nicknamed "Dr. K", is an American former professional baseball pitcher who played 16 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB). Gooden pitched from 1984 to 1994 and from 1996 to 2000 for the New York Mets, New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros, and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. In a career spanning 430 games, he pitched ?2,800 2/3 innings and posted a winloss record of 194112, with a 3.51 earned run average (ERA), and 2,293 strikeouts. Gooden made his MLB debut in 1984 for the Mets and quickly established himself as one of the league's most talented pitchers as a 19-year-old rookie, he earned the first of four All-Star selections, won the National League (NL) Rookie of the Year Award, and led the league in strikeouts. In 1985, he won the NL Cy Young Award and achieved the pitching Triple Crown, compiling a 244 record and a league-leading 1.53 ERA, 268 strikeouts, and 16 complete games. The following season, he helped the Mets win the 1986 World Series. Gooden remained an effective pitcher in subsequent years, but his career was ultimately derailed by cocaine and alcohol addiction. After posting a losing record in each season from 1992 to 1994, Gooden was suspended for the 1995 season after a positive drug test while serving a prior suspension. As a member of the Yankees in 1996, Gooden pitched a no-hitter and helped the team on its path to a World Series championship. He pitched four additional years for as many teams, but never approached the success of his peak years with his Mets. In 2010, Gooden was inducted into the New York Mets Hall of Fame. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Summer and Smoke Opera in two acts based on the play by Tennessee Williams Libretto by Lanford Wilson. Op. 27. Autograph musical manuscript of the complete full score, signed and dated by the composer on the final page: "North Salem, NY, 27 May 1971."

      After hearing Hoiby's earlier opera, A Month in the Country (the revised version of his Natalia Petrovna, based on a play by Ivan Turgenev, premiered by the New York City Opera in 1964), Tennessee Williams approached Hoiby with the suggestion that he might be interested in writing an opera based on one of Williams's works. Hoiby's setting of Summer and Smoke was the result; it is the first opera to be based on a Williams play and is perhaps Hoiby's most famous work. Commissioned by the St. Paul Opera Association, Summer and Smoke was composed in 1970 and premiered on June 19th 1971 in St. Paul, Minnesota with Igor Buketoff conducting. It went on to a production by the New York City Opera on March 12th 1971 under Julius Rudel. "It continues to be performed with substantial success, and its 1980 production by the Chicago Opera Theater was broadcast in June 1982 by PBS-TV (WTTW), Chicago, and seen nationally. For its production during the Lee Hoiby Festival at California State University, Long Beach in 1989... Hoiby added a new scene in Act 1 drawn from his Three Women: Scenes for Soprano, Saxophone and Piano (1988)..." "... Summer and Smoke is a skilful interweaving of offstage music and spoken passages. It is a lyrical, poetic and compelling work that critics praised as America's most successful opera to date. Paul Hume (writing in the Washington Post) considered it an 'opera of immense emotional power flooded with music of great beauty'." Grove online Considered "a modern Romantic from the lineage of Barber and Menotti," Hoiby's Summer and Smoke is regarded as having achieved "an eloquence comparable to the later works of Barber." op. cit. More recently, the work was revived at the Manhattan School of Music, where it received three performances in December, 2010: "When... Summer and Smoke... had its premiere in 1971, it was criticized by some for its conservative music, awash in the harmonic language of Menotti (Mr. Hoiby's mentor), Barber and Mahler, and its unabashedly lyrical vocal writing. But the work, with an effective and delicately poetic libretto by the playwright Lanford Wilson, also won deserved praise for doing what an opera is supposed to do: telling the story with sure dramatic pacing and understated expressivity, in music admirable for its directness and melodic grace." "These qualities shone through on Wednesday night when the Manhattan School of Music Opera Theater presented the first of three performances, with Mr. Hoiby, 84, in attendance. The conductor Steven Osgood drew supple, beautifully restrained playing from the able musicians." "Set in Glorious Hill, a small Mississippi town, the story unfolds during several momentous months in the lives of two young adults who grew up as neighbors: John Buchanan Jr., a dashing doctor, and Alma Winemiller, the sweet but inhibited daughter of a pious minister. The handsome production, directed by Dona D. Vaughn, using windows and sets that descend into place, imaginatively evoked the neighboring houses: the staid sitting room in the rectory where the Winemillers live and the doctor's office where young John Buchanan practices with his father." Anthony Tommasini in The New York Times, December 9, 2010.. Elephant folio (ca. 500 x 330 mm.). Unbound. [1] (title, including cast list and instrumentation), 496 pp. Notated in pencil on 28-stave music manuscript paper on one side of each leaf only. Numerous leaves comprised of sections taped together to form a single leaf; pp. 407-462 on slightly smaller format paper; pp. 251-255 in photographic copy with autograph additions.

I've never had the depressing conviction that something just didn't 'work.' By now, I'm afraid I'm utterly and completely disenchanted with what I've written, and shall have to begin all over again. I have many times tried to begin Scene 2, and found myself in a paralytic vice of creative blockage... I may find that I am unable finally to do this opera, though at this point I don't accept that idea." 3.
