John and Ringo Backstage, Kaiserkeller, 1960 (1999)

By Klaus Voormann
About the image
This image features portraits of both John Lennon and Ringo Starr as they sit backstage preparing to perform another set in Hamburg, Germany in their early days.  The two portraits have a similar positioning to the Revolver album cover montage Klaus Voorman created and has referenced again many time in subsequent Beatles' portraits. 

In 1999, Klaus Voorman and Astrid Kirchherr collaborated on a book project with Genesis Publications, which focused on each of their respective media, in relation to their histories with The Beatles. For the book, Klaus sketched countless "memory drawings" of his experiences with the lads, 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.
