Come Together

JOHN LENNON – A musician, song writer, poet, artist, philosopher – not from 2,000 years ago but of and for our generation. The art forms that he worked with were vehicles for his message – human love and communication!

Art was actually Lennon’s first love. He began drawing long before he had a guitar. He attended the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute for three years (1957-1960) before the Beatles became a full-time occupation. He continued to draw throughout his life. John’s primary medium was line drawing either in pen, pencil, or Japanese sumi ink. His drawings became illustrations for three best selling books: In His Own Write (1964),  A Spaniard in the Works (1965) and Skywriting By Word of Mouth (1987). In addition, a complete suite of the “Bag One” portfolio of lithographs was donated to the  Museum of Modern Art in New York, where it remains in the permanent collection. The graphic collection has traveled throughout the U.S., England, Spain, Italy, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong and Manila. Please check MOMA’s schedule for opportunities to view the collection. John Lennon’s original drawings are also being collected by museums throughout the world.

John Lennon, a loving husband… a dad… a renaissance man…
