Hello.  I was wondering if anyone has any books out there that deal with Beatles art?  There are two that I know of:

 

" The Art Of The Beatles " by Mike Evans (1984)

" Beatles Art: Fantastic New Artwork Of The Fab Four " by Linda and Jeffrey Webb (2006)

 

Does anyone have these books?  Reason I ask is because I have come across a George Harrison painting and cannot figure out who the artist is.  And I thought maybe it would be in one of these books, so it would mention the artist's name.  Here is a link to the painting:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!  a-hard-days-night-george-10

cool.story.mum, the book is Paul McCartney Paintings (Bulfinch, 2000). Some of the paintings are actually pretty good!

A couple of his artworks have been used for his releases too. I know Twin Freaks was one of his. Wasn't the cover for Electric Arguments too?
