THE ART OF JOHN ENTWISTLE – SPECIAL GIFT SET OF RARE ARTIST’S PROOFS
The Art of John Entwistle ~ Special Gift Set of Rare Artists Proofs
John Entwistle was considered by many to be the greatest bass player in the world of rock and roll. As a member of one of the most famous and loved British rock bands, The Who, John had many hidden talents that he didn’t share openly with his fans. He was a history buff, who probably new more about U.S. history than many historians, and an avid collector of cars, dogs and interesting war memorabilia. But one talent that wasn’t publicly revealed until 1995 was his talent as a visual artist.
From 1995 until his untimely death in 2002, John created many original works of art, limited edition prints and spent time traveling across the U.S. meeting with fans and collectors at art galleries hosting exhibits of his art work.
Most of the original works of art are sold and in private collections. The availability of prints has dwindled to a handful. However John’s personal manager, Cy Langston, kept the Artists Proofs for four of the limited edition prints vaulted since his death. For the first time since 2002, he is opening the vault to make them available for purchase as sets. Three of the four prints bear John’s original signature and the fourth print has his signature silk-screened on the print.
