Lucy in the Sky

The original drawing for this edition was done in 1964 and was used as the centerfold in John’s book In His Own Write.

His depiction of a girl flying mirrors the lyrics of the song that was released on the Sgt. Pepper album three years later. The original song Lucy in the sky with diamonds was released on June 1st, 1967.

This piece is the inaugural edition of the In My Life portfolio.

In My Life is a portfolio of limited editions that will all be created in the same format as the original Bag One portfolio that John released in 1970, staying true to John’s vison about how his art should be presented. 

About the Exhibit

“Give Peace a Chance: The Art of John Lennon” showcases the captivating history of Lennon’s visionary art, from his early childhood to his untimely death in 1980.

Its message of peace and unity persevere, resonating with audiences across generations. In an increasingly connected and tumultuous world, the lyrics of this Exhibit’s namesake inspire individuals to work toward a harmonious coexistence, making it as relevant today as it was when it was first recorded.

In addition to the artwork by John Lennon, collectors will also have the opportunity to acquire limited edition releases of his handwritten compositions of some of his most famous songs. All limited edition prints are hand signed by Yoko Ono and estate plate signed with John Lennon’s embossed signature as well as stamped with his personal Japanese Hanko which translates to “Like a cloud, beautiful sound.”

Lennon’s artwork predated his success with the Beatles and remained a passion throughout his years as a music legend. While music will be remembered as his most popular art form, art on paper was his first love. He loved both his literature and his art, studying at Liverpool Art Institute from I957 – I960. During his lifetime, he produced numerous series of sketches and lithographs, which were first published starting in the early 1960s. Often surreal and composed through a method of free association, his drawings from this period were widely considered some of the finest interpretive artworks of the era.
