Description: [2 Items, Reggie Kray of the Kray Twins] **** Original artwork by Reggie Kray. 215 x 173mm. Crayon on yellow card-stock, depicting a boxer in the ring, and signed by Reggie Kray (lower right.) **** MS note from "B cell," signed by Reggie Kray. ******************************** Ronnie and Reggie Kray (known as the "Kray Twins") were notorious London gangsters during the 1950s and 60s. Their exploits afforded them some celebrity, and they mingled with politicians and celebrities of the time, including Frank Sinatra. Both received life sentences in 1969. The two pieces present here would have been drawn and composed (respectively) while Reggie was in prison. The manuscript note is dated 1992, and the accompanying drawing was likely created at the same time. For compassionate reasons, Reggie was released from prison in 2000, only eight weeks before he would die from bladder cancer.
