John Lennon's "Bag One"
Here we have an unusual item from John Lennon....his
famous Bag One artwork. Bag One was a suite of lithographs by John Lennon
that were given to Yoko Ono as a wedding gift in 1969. A series
of fourteen original lithographs , each was pulled on BFK Rives paper at
The Bank Street Atelier, Ltd., in New York. The edition was limited to 300
examples, with each print individually signed by John Lennon and numbered
1 to 300. This exhibition caused quite a controversy as to whether these
lithographs were art or pornography, and eventually the art was
confiscated by Scotland Yard while on exhibit in London. John was later
exonerated by the British courts, but many of the prints were
mishandled and never returned to the Lennons. These lithographs are on
permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and sort
after by the most discriminating of art collectors.
