Lennon Drawings On Show

A collection of late BEATLE legend JOHN LENNON's original drawings are going on display at a U.S. museum.
His widow, Yoko Ono, is protective of the sketches, which are worth a substantial sum, but is allowing the exhibition to go ahead at the Waukesha County Historical Society Museum in Wisconsin.
The 27 pencil and pen drawings, along with five lithographs and serigraphs, have been loaned by an anonymous retired curator - who has also leant the museum other memorabilia, including the microphone Lennon used to record hit song Imagine.
The collector's stash is reported to be the third-largest public collection of original Lennon drawings, with Ono holding the most.
Paul Jillson, who represents Lennon's artwork says, "His art really speaks to people on a direct emotional level because, although it's simple in form, it has a lot of emotional meaning. It reminds people of why John was significant and what he stood for."
The exhibition, entitled Coming Together Through The Art of John Lennon runs from Saturday (16Aug08) until 1 September (08).
