John Lennon

Renaissance man, musician, song writer, poet, philosopher and artist.

Art was John Lennon’s first love and he began drawing long before he played a guitar, attending the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute in the years before The Beatles became a full-time occupation. He drew throughout his life, primarily line drawings which he created with inspiration and speed, very much as he created his songs. They became illustrations for three best selling books and a portfolio of lithographs was donated to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York, where it remains in the permanent collection.

The artwork celebrates human love and communication, two themes at the heart of his contribution to twentieth century art. In his lifetime he remained an outsider to the art world, largely because of his fame as a Beatle and how he was viewed by the world as a result of it. In hindsight that was fortunate, it allowed his works to maintain their purity, free from comments and ‘suggestions’ by critics and dealers.

John Lennon limited edition prints are posthumous editions reproduced after John Lennon’s death, created from his original drawings, personally selected and authorised by Yoko Ono Lennon.
