Description


White heavy-duty vinyl 32 x 35 Bag One folio carrying case, embossed with ‘Bag One’ and Lennon’s facsimile signature on one side. The original Lee Nordness gallery catalog, which is signed and inscribed by Nordness. Also included is a press release about the lithos, as well as a price sheet of Bag One titles available for purchase. In fine condition, with scattered light wear, scuffs, and soiling. This case once held a series of 14 lithographs, the originals of which were given to Yoko Ono as a wedding gift to celebrate their marriage and subsequent honeymoon in Amsterdam. Limited to 300 sets, each numbered print was individually signed in pencil by Lennon. The exhibition of the photographs in New York and London caused quite a controversy due to the erotic nature of eight of the lithographs. In London, the lithographs on exhibition were confiscated by Scotland Yard on the charge that they were pornography rather than art. Lennon was later exonerated by the British courts, but many of the prints were mishandled and never returned. Over the years, as sets of the lithographs were broken up and sold individually, these folio bags would sporadically appear for sale. RRAuction COA.
