‘The Beatles’ by Richard Avedon (American, 1923-2004)
Price Code: SOLD
Reference: 6873 (Set of 4)
A set of four solarized poster portraits of The Beatles, commissioned by the band’s management company from fashion photographer Richard Avedon, to promote the release of the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Each day-glo image plays to each of the band member’s attributes – John in his trippy glasses, Paul’s ‘flower power’ attitude, George’s mysticism, and Ringo’s peace symbol. This set was published in the January, 1968 edition of the German current affairs magazine Stern, and each has been framed using an acid-free mount, plain black oak frame and is glazed with UV Plexiglas.
Overall size of each: 36 x 28 inches (92 x 71 cm)
