I have one absolute favourite among Gould pictures. It's from his late
period (surprise, surprise). It was the cover on the earlier three cd
version of the WTC, but now it's been relegated to the inside of the
Beethoven variation box. For me this photo is the very essence of Gould's
late style intensity.

As far as I know this picture is not available on-line. I would very much
like to have a poster of it, though.
