John Lennon (1940-1980) (PF270)
Whimsical sketch on yellow paper, signed by The Beatle
John Lennon (1940-1980) was one of the founding members of The Beatles. He was a controversial peace activist, engaging in the anti-war movement. In December 1980, he was shot in the back four times by Mark David Chapman outside his New York apartment, dying in hospital later that evening.
To date he has sold 14 million albums in the United States alone. In 1987 he was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, in recognition of the 27 number one US singles he helped create.
Lennon was a passionate artist. His drawings became illustrations for three books that he wrote in the 1960s.
This unique playful drawing on yellow paper measures 9 x 11.5 inches. Three fantastical cartoon figures are shown facing each other in a confrontational manner. The humorous pencil drawings features Lennon's signature in full.
Some light crinkling, fold marks, small tear to one corner and very light smudging, otherwise this original whimsical drawing is in excellent condition.
