Limited edition 29.75 x 23 lithograph entitled ‘Erotic No. 3,’ from the Bag One series, numbered 211/300, signed in the lower right corner in pencil, “John Lennon.” In very good condition, with mild uniform toning over image and portion of borders from previous display, some scattered creases, and more noticeable 2″ vertical gouge to background of left side. Lennon’s signature measures almost 7.5″ in length. 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 suite also contained several erotic sketches. ‘The Bag One’ series was first published and exhibited in January 1970 at the London Art Gallery. On the second day the exhibition was closed by Scotland Yard and the erotic lithographs confiscated. The complete set of Bag One lithographs is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
