John Lennon – Signed, numbered Poets lithograph, 1969
A John Lennon signed lithograph issued as part of the “Bag One” series. This beauty is titled “Poet’s Page A to Z” and is one of the most desirable of the “Bag One” lithographs, as it is a poem in the form of the alphabet, as written by Lennon. Many of the lithographs in this series are erotic and very explicit sexually, and as such are viewed as unexciting by collectors. As Lennon was known primarily as a writer, this has become one of the most in demand pieces. Lennon made these prints in 1969, and they were first exhibited in London in January, 1970 at the London Art Gallery on Bond Street in London, England. They were printed by the Crommylynck Brothers, who printed Picasso’s prints. There is an outstanding website that details the entire history of this series of prints and talks about this print that can be seen at: http://www.johnlennon.it/showcase_bag_one.htm This print measures 30 1/2″ x 22 3/4″ and is in outstanding condition. It is numbered 92/300 in pencil in the lower left hand corner and hand-signed by John Lennon in pencil in the lower right corner (this is about as nice a Lennon signature as you’ll ever see, measuring a full 5 1/2″ across.) It is in it’s original custom made brushed steel frame. I have removed the print to inspect it, and have replaced the glass with special ultra violet filtering plexi-glass, and the backing with archival acid free board. The frame has some minor dings but is in overall excellent condition. This is a beautiful and very desirable lithograph, with great content, in super condition. If you’re interested, take the time to read the web page above which will fill you in on the fascinating story of Lennon and this artwork. This original lithograph has been inspected by legendary Beatles expert Perry Cox, author of “The Official Beatles Price Guide,” and his letter of authenticity accompanies it. Guaranteed authentic with no time limit, as everything we offer.
