About the image
Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr of The Beatles visited Tenerife with their friends from Hamburg, Astrid Kirchherr and Klaus Voormann, in 1963 for a well-earned holiday after the release of their debut album, Please, Please Me. (John was holidaying in Torremolinos with Brian Epstein).

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.
