Oooo! that's great!
NICE photo, Jan. Great capture of the spathes/bracts. I have this cultivar, and *should* have remembered that I had a photo of it, too! But I think it's on a negative, not a digital photo. :-(
Thanks for posting! I like it!

Bob, Here is the best one I know of. 'Ominous Stranger' Innerst 1993. I posted this picture to the Wiki a couple of weeks ago because I thought it was a very distinctive feature to help ID this iris.
Hope this is what you are looking for.

Subject: [iris-photos] Help with name and photo
Its bad to have poor recall but I trust the collective memory of this group can help me. I remember seeing TBs with purple bracts below their flowers but cannot remember the cultivar names. Does anyone know about these and have photos I could use in the Iris Encyclopedia? I know the species I. purpureobracteata has this character but I am looking for the TB hybrids that developed this independent of that species. Can anyone help?
