George Harrison, Tenerife, c. 1999

By Klaus Voormann
About the image
A sketch of George Harrison inspired by a 12-day holiday three of The Beatles took in April, 1963 after a very busy year of touring and the recording and release of their first studio album, Please Please Me. Paul, George & Ringo all went to Santa Cruz, Tenerife - with their friends from Hamburg, Astrid Kirchherr and Klaus Voormann - while John and Brian Epstein flew to Spain.

In addition to working on design for the massive Beatles Anthology project beginning in the mid-1990s, Klaus Voorman collaborated with photographer Astrid Kirchherr on a book project called Hamburg Days with Genesis Publications, which focused on each of their respective media, in relation to their histories with The Beatles. Klaus sketched countless "memory drawings" of his experiences with the lads during the process of revisiting so many memories over the years, many of which ended up in the book, or became more refined paintings and illustrations.

Collector's Notes:
This is a one-of-a-kind drawing created during the production of the limited edition fine art book Hamburg Days in 1999, signed by Grammy Award-winning artist Klaus Voormann.
