The art was drawn by Lennon of the couple getting married before going on their honeymoon to Amsterdam. John Lennon's Bag One Portfolio is a series of fourteen original lithographs that were given to Yoko Ono as a wedding gift to celebrate their marriage and subsequent honeymoon in Amsterdam at the Hilton Hotel in 1969... Lennon's' appeal for world peace and love was called the "Bed-In, " creating an instant sensation worldwide... Many of the drawings featured John and Yoko in erotic positions.
The Bag One series was first published and exhibited in January 1970 at the London Art Gallery. On the second day the exhibition was closed by Scotland Yard and the erotic lithographs confiscated. This exhibition caused quite a controversy as to whether these lithographs were art or pornography, and eventually the art was confiscated by Scotland Yard while on exhibit in London. John was later exonerated by the British courts.These lithographs are on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and sought after by the most discriminating of art collectors. Art was actually Lennon's first love. He began drawing long before he had a guitar, then attended the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute for three years (1957-60) before the Beatles became a full-time occupation. He continued to draw throughout his life.
Yoko's also been regarded as an important contemporary artist, a key player in conceptual art, performance art and the Fluxus group. Plus, she's known as a champion of her late husband's legacy, as well as a high-profile advocate for peace. In fact, Lennon first met Ono at an art exhibition of hers.
Their first interaction is well chronicled: In November 1966, Lennon bemusedly walked around an average-looking apple on a pedestal priced at 200 pounds, then he climbed up a ladder and looked through a spyglass pointed toward the ceiling. What he saw was the word "yes, " scrawled on a piece of paper. "It's so amazing, " said Ono, who was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1933. She permanently moved to the U. In hindsight, it seems almost like a planned thing.
I just exhibited that work. But it seems like I was saying'yes' to John. Yoko's original signature is matted under the piece of art featuring her & John as a couple getting married to Yoko Ono that was drawn by John to make for a beautiful display..I hope this helps you make a good investment.
