This is a rich and emotive vintage limited edition hand-pulled silk screen serigraph print of a portrait of John Lennon, c. 1977. The photograph was taken by Nishi Saimaru, who was John Lennon and Yoko Ono's personal assistant and photographer from 1976-1979. This piece is a hand-pulled serigraph that colorizes a grayscale version of his portrait. It is a relatively stoic portrait of Lennon, but the colorized details add a sense of playfulness and vintage nod to the colorful life and music of the Beatles and John Lennon.
This piece is signed and numbered, edition 276 out of 300. This photo was taken in Japan in 1977. It is nicely framed and matted in a simple, clean, modern black frame with white matting.
The print measures 10 3/4 inches wide and 16 1/4 inch tall. The frame is 18 inches wide and 23 1/2 inches tall.
It is in excellent vintage condition.
