(RTTNews) – The Art of John Lennon exhibit, which features the late Beatle’s unseen drawings, will go on display this month at London’s Mandeville Hotel, according to the U.K.’s Telegraph.
With permission from Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, fans can look at her husband’s hand-drawn sketches, which portray his roles as a political campaigner and a family man.
In his drawing named “Power to the People,” there is a man in a suit who is standing on a plinth raising a clenched fist. The character also is wearing a spiked headdress, resembling the Statue of Liberty. Another drawing, deemed “Dream Power,” is a picture of Lennon wearing his trademark circular glasses while sitting underneath a tree with his arm around his naked wife.
“John did his drawings with inspiration and speed, very much like how he created his songs. Most of the time, the drawings reflected his mood,” said Ono in a statement. “Along with his guitar, pen and paper seemed to have served as ideal tools to express John’s complex emotions.”
The exhibition will be open February 26 and 27. It is open to the public both days from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
