John Lennon may always be remembered first and foremost for his musical career. However, his work in art and political commentary has formed the background to the legacy of this cultural icon. His deeply personal sketches show the wit, quiet observation and constantly creative expression Lennon is still known for. Lennon’s artwork touches on both personal and political themes. His family life and romantic relationship are often featured, as are commentaries on the societal issues of the time. The artwork itself has been published and promoted by Yoko Ono, Lennon’s wife at the time of his death – her signature is added to all of the officially published editions of Lennon’s artworks.
