Description


Limited edition 29.75 x 22.75 lithograph entitled entitled 'Erotic No. 4' from Lennon's infamous 'Bag One' portfolio, numbered 15/300, prominently signed in pencil, "John Lennon." The oversized print depicts an intimate scene between Lennon and Yoko Ono. Beautifully mounted, matted, and framed to an overall size of 40 x 32.5. In very fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.

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.
