Who knows where to find a high quality photograph - print - poster of Julia Child to grace our kitchen?

My goo-fu has failed me... I'm looking for a high quality photograph of Saint Julia in/or her kitchen to grace our kitchen. I've searched everywhere and now turn to the collective hive mind for assistance...

Response by poster: Thanks, cerebus19 - however I'd like something that's a bit more of a standout. I thought the Smithsonian would surely have something, but noooooo. Something along the lines of her hoisting a giant salmon or one of the great shots of her kitchen. Thank you!!

Honestly, I'd probably hit the used bookstores and find some of her cookbooks. Most of them are full of classic pictures (hilariously brandishing a whole raw chicken, for example) that you could liberate from their bindings and put in a frame.

Response by poster: Hmmm, the Time magazine cover doesn't do much. Frankly I'd feel a bit odd about tearing a page out of her books (one of the few cookbook authors I can say that about, and I've had several hundred cookbooks through my hands) but that might be my last resort. Everyone's digging is greatly appreciated!

Maybe get a high quality scan of an image in one of her cookbooks and have it printed as a poster.

On postview, that one would be perfect for MY kitchen! Thanks for the inspiration, TomSophieIvy!

Here's a good one from the NYT, which probably has more than this. I'd contact the paper directly to ask about getting a high quality print.

How about a poster of Julia and Jacques Pepin, signed by both of them? You'll have to bid on it, and in the next 9 hours or so, but it's a pretty good deal.

Ebay has some cool things, now that I'm digging. Check out this.

I don't know if it's possible to acquire, but the very best, I would think, would be a copy of this portrait of Julia Child and her husband, by Elsa Dorfman. A copy once hung in the now defunct Cremaldi's* in Cambridge.
