ART IN A CORNER
Inspired by Images of a Woman, the only known painting ever made by The Beatles
Endorsed by Paul McCartney and in support of two of the UK’s leading arts and music charities, ART IN A CORNER is inspired by ‘Images of a Woman’, the only known painting ever made by The Beatles, painted in Japan in 1966.

The paintings will be shown in a series of exhibitions across the UK, before being sold in support of:
Exhibited artwork will include behind-the-scenes photos of The Beatles’ 1966 tour of Japan, by renowned British photographer Robert Whitaker.
