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

I have Volume Two of The Beatles illustrated book. I also have the book of painting Paul put out, but I've never seen a book of fan created art. I'd be very interested in that if someone found one.

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

It's modern art. I think a number of them are quite good.

I would think you might find them online, no?

If not, when I have a moment I can scan and upload a couple.

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?
