Large c. 1976 photograph of tennis star Arthur Ashe as he promoted medication and good health. It is an eerie photograph as Ashe would suffer a heart attack in 1979 and then a series of health issues that would force him to have blood transfusions in which he contracted HIV and then later the AIDS virus. A bold image in great shape and one of his best we have ever seen with tragic overtones.
