Lot 5039
Full image available upon request. Limited edition 30 x 22.75 lithograph of 'Erotic 8' from Lennon's Bag One Portfolio, numbered 264/300, depicting a reclined Yoko Ono with legs spread and Lennon resting his head upon her left thigh, signed in the lower right corner in pencil by Lennon. Rolled and in fine condition. In 1969, as a wedding gift for Yoko, John drew the 'Bag One Portfolio'--a chronicle of their wedding ceremony, honeymoon, and their plea for world peace in the Bed-In. The following year the artwork was produced in a series of three hundred portfolios of fifteen signed prints each. The majority depict John and Yoko's most intimate, private moments--upon their first exhibition in London, more than half were deemed 'indecent' and confiscated by Scotland Yard. The complete set of Bag One lithographs is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
