DescriptionJohn Lennon's Shaved Fish (Apple, 1975). Mike Bryan Original Concept Art (12" X 12").
Artist Mike Bryan, well known for creating the movie poster art for such films as Scarface (1983), Prizzi's Honor (1985), Platoon (1986), and RoboCop (1987) was asked by Capitol Records in 1975 to create the album cover art for a "Best of" John Lennon solo record. The result was this beautiful piece of art, which was presented to Lennon for his critique. Lennon thought the art "too good" for the Shaved Fish album and wanted to use it for a collection of new material, which he never produced. This is the only surviving concept art for Shaved Fish that remains, it features a cloud background that would appear behind Lennon's glasses in a gatefold album. Bryan went on to do alternate art for Shaved Fish, which was used for that album. There is small surface abrasion in Lennon's cheek. Mounted on paper that has light wrinkling and a top and bottom right corner bend. Very Fine+.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
