  • Afternoon Tea artwork by John Lennon - art listed for sale on Artplode

About Artist:

Although John Lennon is best be remembered as the leader of the Beatles and for his famous song Imagine, he loved art studied art at Liverpool Art Institute from 1957-1960. John Lennon illustrated three books: In His Own Write, A Spaniard in the Works, and Skywriting by Word of Mouth.

John Lennon preferred drawing in particular the creative loose sketch, working in pen and ink. In 1969, as a wedding gift for Yoko, John drew the Bag One Portfolio, a chronicle of their wedding ceremony, honeymoon, and their plea for world peace, the Bed-in. The suite also contained erotic sketches. The Bag One Series was first published and exhibited in January 1970 at the London Art Gallery. On the second day, the exhibition was closed by Scotland Yard and the erotic lithographs confiscated.

Yoko Ono decided to share John Lennons drawings with the public in 1986 by fine art prints for sale at exhibitions and galleries throughout the world.

These fine art prints are a commentary on Johns everyday life, his wife, Yoko and their son, Sean. The drawings were autobiographical portraits of their years together. The John Lennon fine art prints celebrate human love and communication- two themes at the heart of John Lennon art and his contribution to the art of the twentieth century.

About Artwork:

Drawn during a summer holiday in Karuizawa in 1977, this light-hearted sketch of John and Yoko enjoying afternoon tea, carries the inscription of Yoko "The Ono Lennon's...Lets Have a Dream".
