John Lennon as a graphic artist any more than you think of Leonardo da Vinci as a composer. Yet Leonardo composed some interesting music and Lennon created a good deal of interesting art.
And although it is silly to compare the two beyond that, it is pertinent to note one difference: Leonardo's interest in music was passing, but Lennon's interest in graphic art was lifelong. Whether working with pen or guitar, he was dedicated, not a dabbler.
In 1987 seven years after his death, a series of his graphic art called "The John Lennon Collection" is making the rounds of galleries in the United States. Two shows open today, one in Washington and one in Boston.
"The fact that he was a pop star," said Yoko Ono, "made people think, 'Oh, this is just the hobby of a pop star.' I think that was a deterrentfrom people taking (his art work ) very seriously. But he . . . did a lot of beautiful, beautiful works, and I think part of him always wanted to do a gallery show."Lennon did do a gallery show back in 1970, when his Bag One lithographs caused a stir in London and the United States for their "erotic" content. Undaunted, Lennon continued sketching and making collages, as was his habit, and discussed doing more shows.
"We were talking about gallery shows during those five years - the 'laid- back' years, or whatever they call them," Ono said recently in an interview. Last year, the Dyansen Gallery chain, in association with Ono and Fine Arts Acquisitions Ltd., staged an exhibit of 17 Lennon sketches and drawings, many from the musician's period of semiseclusion in the couple's Dakota apartment in New York City.
Now comes Phase 2: the John Lennon Collection, a display of limited-edition serigraphs, many never before exhibited, ranging in price from $400 to $1,000. Under the license of New York's Marigold Enterprises Ltd., the collection also contains neon sculptures, bronze sculptures, crystal sculptures and enormous tapestries based on the drawings.
The project bears Ono's business imprint. The limited editions of the John Lennon Collection may have bona-fide artistic pretensions, but the adjunct John Lennon Boutique Collection is commercial all the way.
It includes Lennon's designs translated into, silk scarf such as this work.
