Description


Limited edition 29.5 x 22.5 lithograph entitled 'Exchange of Rings' from Lennon's infamous 'Bag One' portfolio, numbered 197/300, prominently signed in pencil, "John Lennon." The oversized print depicts a touching moment between Lennon and Yoko Ono as a newly married couple. In fine condition, with a bit of very unobtrusive light rippling.

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 non-erotic lithographs are scarcer than the erotics. The complete set of Bag One lithographs is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
