John Lennon, Napping, c. 1999

By Klaus Voormann
About the image
This is an original drawing of John Lennon napping, a memory from Klaus' early days with the band in Hamburg, Germany.

"Talking was never my forte. My favorite forms of expression have always been a pencil and a piece of paper. And this has remained so until today. I always have a pad and a pencil in my pocket, ever ready to capture the moment that my eye finds to be of importance." 

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.
