Default Picture painted by The Beatles obtained by gallery in Sapporo

Picture painted by The Beatles obtained by gallery in Sapporo

The long lost Beatles painting.

(Kyodo) _ A long-lost picture painted by The Beatles when the group visited Japan 40 years ago has been obtained by a gallery in Sapporo, Hokkaido, the gallery manager and the original owner of the picture said Friday.
The picture is one of those drawn or painted by all the four members of the band when they stayed at a hotel in Tokyo for their concert in the Nippon Budokan in 1966.

It will be displayed to the public for the first time at the Continental Gallery from July 8 to 15.

The Beatles gave the abstract picture -- 55 centimeters by 80 cm -- drawn in pen and painted in watercolor to Rumiko Hoshika, 65, a music critic who visited the members at their hotel for an interview, she said.

"The four said they were painting pictures because security was so strict and they had no other things to do," Hoshika said. "They took turns retouching the picture and gave it to me."

Hoshika said she forgot to take the picture with her after the interview, and it was sent back to Britain by mistake. She tried to trace it, but gave it up later as she thought it was thrown away.

The Continental Gallery bought the picture last year from the holder of the picture at the time, gallery manager Ryoji Homma said, declining to say who the previous owner was.

Hoshika looked at the picture and referred to photos taken during the interview to confirm the picture was genuine.

Homma quoted the undisclosed previous owner as saying, "I want this to be displayed to the public widely. It won't get public attention if an individual like me holds it."

Hoshika said, "I feel a magical coincidence as (the picture) appeared to me exactly 40 years after (The Beatles) came to Japan. The picture has a delicate touch, and I suspect that shows especially John Lennon's character."









This is a painting that was just recently auctioned off from that time. It was done by John and Paul, Tokyo, 1966:




"Images Of A Woman" painting done as 4 seperate panels by each Beatle to form the picture.

Thanks for posting this, Paulrus. How'd that 3yen.com thing get into the post, though? I didn't notice it this morning.

Yw, Sandra. I think it might be somekind of encrypted security programme they put with the pic to prevent hotlinking or something like that.
