Imagine the Art of John Lennon


While John Lennon’s musical legacy is appreciated throughout the world, his artistic genius was far broader than most people could imagine.

John Lennon studied art for three years at the Liverpool Art School, planning to be a commercial artist before forming the greatest rock and roll band of all time - The Beatles. The rest, as they say, is history.

Over 100 of John's whimsical sketches and handwritten song manuscripts are on exhibition, and available for sale, at the exhibition Imagine. With the cooperation of Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, the collection has toured throughout the US, Japan, Europe and South East Asia during the past fifteen years.

The works have been personally selected by Yoko Ono from her extensive collection of John’s original drawings, and are individually numbered and signed in pencil by her. Published as limited edition fine art prints by Bag One Arts, the publishing arm of the Lennon estate, the works reveal an intense relationship with Yoko Ono and son Sean, plus a real sense of harmony with the world around him

John's messages in the drawings about love and human communication echo those in his famous songs and are as relevent today as they were when drawn over 20 years ago.

Some of the prints have the simple beauty and style of Matisse or Picasso, while others have the texture of classic Chinese and Japanese landscapes.

Also on display are the hand written song manuscripts to twenty one of John’s most famous songs including Imagine, In My Life, Nowhere Man Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds Woman and Beautiful Boy. Limited to only 1000 for sale worldwide, the lyrics are compelling and intensely personal reminders of Lennon’s contribution to twentieth century culture.
