1940-1980 Art was actually Lennon's first love. He began drawing long before he had a guitar, then attended the prestigous Liverpool Art Institute for three years (1957-60) before the Beatles became a full-time occupation. He continued to draw throughout his life. Lennon originally created a portfolio of drawings in 1969 which he entitled "Bag One". These drawings depicted John and Yoko's wedding and honeymoon and he presented them to her as a wedding gift. The Bag One suite represents the only hand signed prints available by John Lennon. Later editions were authenticated by his embossed signature, the embossed printer and publisher's mark, Yoko Ono Lennon's hand-signature, and John's personal chop mark.
This is to purchase a Limited Edition Serigraph by John Lennon during his Dakota Years in New York. Printed in 1979 and is signed by Yoko Ono with a John Lennon stamp or "Chop Mark". This particular piece was purchased from Renaissance Art Gallery in the early 80's.
The serigraph is on Stonehenge Paper and is 19 X 23 in but 26 X 30 with the frame. Frame is Fiberglass with double matting. Beautifully done in museum quality, in mint condition. #183 out of 300.
*Artists in the Orient sign their works with an individual, patented stamp known as a chop. John Lennon's (to the left), which is hand-stamped in red on each edition, was designed by him to read "Like a Cloud, Beautiful Sound."
*Each limited edition fine art print is authenticated by John Lennon's embossed signature, the embossed printer and publisher's mark, Yoko Ono Lennon's hand-signature, and John's personal chop mark.
*Serigraphs use a silkscreen to reproduce fine lines and colors. Stone lithographs are hand-pulled on a printing press using stone plates with the image transferred to the fine art paper. Each artwork was released in the medium most suited to capturing the original drawing.
