Framed beneath Plexiglas to a slightly larger size. Unexamined out of the frame, but appears in fine condition. John 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. In 1970 he chose 14 drawings from the "Bag One" portfolio to be produced as stone lithographs in a limited edition.
He personally signed each lithograph and attended the premier opening in London. When the drawings were released, they were confiscated by police in several countries because the erotic content of several prints were considered obscene.
Although the charges never held up in court, many of the lithographs were destroyed by mishandling and John was discouraged from showing his artwork in public for many years afterwards.
