Lot description
A set of psychedelic Beatles posters by the internationally acclaimed photographer Richard Avedon. Created in 1967, these images have since become iconic for both the Beatles and British Pop Art.

In 1967 The Beatles' management company, NEMS Enterprises, approached Richard Avedon to commission a set of portraits and gave the distribution rights to different outlets in different countries. LOOK magazine in the United States, the Daily Express Newspaper in the UK, and STERN and Varagids magazine in Europe handled the distribution of the works.

These posters were made to be hung on walls and it is very rare to find impressions without tears, creasing or pinholes.
