Fabulous works of art by or inspired by the Beatles and their followers will be a major attraction at The Cheshire Decorative Antiques & Art Fair at Tatton Park, Knutsford, from 18th - 20th September 2015.
Going on sale will be original prints by John Lennon, featuring characters from his books, the prints signed by Yoko Ono, original drawings by Klaus Voorman, who played guitar with the group during their Hamburg period, and an inspired watercolour composed around the song ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ for a Beatles project by the contemporary artist Angel Dominguez.

The Lennon prints and the original drawings by Klaus Voorman (b.1938), will be shown by Keith Denny of Balmain Fine Art from Cleveland. Voorman was trained as a graphic artist in Berlin and worked as a commercial artist, graphic designer and illustrator. He designed the cover art for the Beatles’ LP ‘Revolver’, for which he won a Grammy award, and went on to design cover works for Wet Wet Wet and the Bee Gees. As a musician, he worked with John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band, Manfred Mann, Lous Reed, Carly Simon, Cat Stevens, Harry Nilsson and many others. The Voorman drawings will be priced at £200 each.
The John Lennon prints come from a series signed and authenticated by Yoko One. Yoko Ono decided to share John’s artistic genius with the public by publishing his work, which is whimsical yet poetic and shows another side. Balmain Fine Art will have approximately twenty Lennon works on show, priced from £300 each.
Also on sale will be the pen and watercolour work by Angel Dominquez. This colourful work is inspired by the song ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and was done for a Beatles project that was never completed. It will be on sale from Art of the Imagination, priced at £3,000.
