B31348 – John Lennon Bag One Erotic Lithograph (UK)


An original lithograph image of Yoko Ono from John Lennon’s infamous 1969 Bag One collection. The lithograph has been signed by John Lennon in pencil on the bottom right corner and numbered 298/300. It was autographed in the Toronto home of the American musician Ronnie Hawkins in December 1969. 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.” It has tape verso verso from when it was previously mounted. The lithograph measures 76cm x 58cm x (30 inches x 22.75 inches).  The condition is very good plus.
