About

This print is guaranteed authentic and in mint condition. This drawing is entitled "Honeymoon." John created the drawing based on press photos of the Lennons rushing through the airport on their way from getting married in Gibraltar in 1969. (Light spot in the upper right is a reflection; not on the print itself.) They are the only artworks that Lennon ever signed by sale, and it is hand numbered and signed in pencil by John Lennon (#183/300) There is only one available, and it is archivally framed as shown; ready to hang and enjoy! John Lennon (1940 - 1980) was a contemporary musician, song writer, poet, philosopher and artist, whose message across all professions, was peace and harmony. Long before he was a celebrated musician with The Beatles, Lennon was studying his first love at the esteemed Liverpool Art Institute. He focused on line drawing, using sumi ink or a pen to create beautiful line illustrations. Lennon illustrated his 3 best selling books that were published in the 1960s. In 1979 he had multiple international one man shows that featured his signed lithograph portfolio, entitle "Bag One." Today his whimsical expressions of humanity are enjoyed by many critics and collectors alike as they are display in institutions such as the The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Art was another way for Lennon to express the wit, wisdom, and whimsey that made him one of the most important cultural figures of our time. As John once said, "If art were to redeem man, it could do so only by saving him from the seriousness of life, and restoring him to an unexpected boyishness."
