B29355 – John Lennon Bag One Numbered Title Sheet Lithograph (UK)
An original numbered lithograph title sheet from John Lennon’s infamous 1969 Bag One collection. The lithograph has been numbered in pencil in the centre. 227/300. The series of drawings was first published under the title Bag One and exhibited in January, 1970 at the London Art Gallery. On its second day of viewing, the exhibition was closed by Scotland Yard and the lithographs were confiscated because of their highly intimate and erotic nature. The case was ultimately dismissed when the magistrate decided that John’s prints were “unlikely to deprave or corrupt.” The lithograph measures 76cm x 58cm x (30 inches x 22.75 inches). There is some water damage and mottling on the bottom right corner. The condition is very good minus.
