Description: 1966 Beatles "Images of a Woman" Signed Painting
Lot consists of an Original, one of a kind oil and watercolor painting by The Beatles, known as "Images of a Woman". This incredible painting by the Beatles was done out of sheer boredom. They arrived in Tokyo on June 29th, 1966. Because they had received death threats before the trip to Japan, they were advised not to leave their hotel room until it was time for their concert at the Budokan Hall. The Budokan Hall was used for sumo wrestling, which of course was very popular in Japan, and there were protests outside the stadium by people who felt the Beatles should not be allowed into the home of sumo wrestling. To keep busy while in their hotel room, the Beatles were given some paper and paints and over the course of two nights, they collaborated on this painting. The paper they were given was approx. 30" x 40" and was placed on a table with a lamp in the center. Working with the light of the lamp, each member of the Beatles decorated their own corner of the paper with oil paint and watercolor. Paul's corner has a symmetrical, psychedelic feel, John's has a dark center surrounded by thick oils, George's part is large and colorful, and Ringo's has a cartoon like image. When the lamp was removed from the table, it left a white circle in the middle of the painting, which was signed by all four of the Beatles. Once complete, this painting was presented to Mr. Tetsusaburo Shimoyama who was a curator of Shochiku-Kaikan and chairman of the Beatles Fan Club Japan. Image size seen is approx. 30-3/4" x 20-1/2". There are some light cracks and a few tiny areas of paint flakes and crackling. Incredible one of a kind painting by The Beatles.
Estimate: 80,000.00 - 120,000.00
