"It simply is the most beautiful book I've ever done." — Bob Eckstein, author...
I've been waiting for this one! For the first time, in one place!
Before Lennon was a singer, a Beatle, or a music legend, he was an artist. Professionally trained, he attended the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute form 1957 to 1960.
Throughout the course of his career, John Lennon’s work as an artist expressed common societal themes from every epoch he witnessed. Until now, little of this work has been seen in one place. For the first time, John Lennon: The Collected Artwork offers a visually captivating history of Lennon’s art from his early childhood to his untimely death in 1980.
This captivating collection includes more than 200 images and features 25 never-before-published pieces from the archives of Yoko Ono.
Often surreal and extremely vibrant, Lennon’s drawings were widely considered some of the finest interpretive art of the era.
In 1969, Lennon began exhibiting selected drawings from a series entitled Bag One. This array, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, was wildly popular and frequently censored due to its overt eroticism.
His peace-themed sketches have been used in antiwar movements since the 1970s. Selections from these and many other series are featured in this matchless collection, a beautiful showpiece and a timeless record of Lennon’s emotional, political, and imaginative spirit.
Lennon's artwork predated his success with The Beatles and remained a passion throughout his years as a music legend. During his lifetime, he produced numerous series of sketches and lithographs, which were published starting in the early 1960s.
Capturing his emotional, political, and imaginative energy, John Lennon: The Collected Artwork is a lavishly produced collection that will serve as a timeless record of John Lennon's creative spirit.
