John Lennon Self Portrait Sells At Auction

A sketch that John Lennon drew depicting himself as Adolf Hitler has sold at auction for $54,000. The crude drawing was created by Lennon during a period of time where he was attending Liverpool College of Art in the late 1950s. As Page Six reports, the drawing is part of a larger sketch book that makes liberal use of Nazi iconography mixed with the likeness of the Beatles members. “He drew these when he was a college student, and the fact that he even thought of depicting himself as Hitler is weird,” said Gary Zimet of Moments in Time, which is arranging the sale. Zimet added, “Original Lennon drawings are very desirable and they are ultra rare.” The drawing shows Lennon on a podium with his hand raised in a Nazi salute and the words “Heil John” repeated several times.
