John Lennon (1940-1980).. a multi talented artist

John Lennon, composer, rock artist, activist, actor and the reason for this blog “artist”.  It was until 10 years ago when  i acquired a book on the artist John Lennon that i realized that beside all his qualities he also was an excellent drawing artist. Possibly the influence of his second wife Yoko Ono,

he developed a complete style of his own and made some excellent drawings, portraits and sketches from daily life. His erotic draewing are made in a time that there was liberation and they must have contributed to a more open view towards sex. An excellent book on his drawings is availabel at www.ftn-books.com together with some excellent biographical publications.
