Don’t know if Sixties British  Pop Artist Pauline Boty was the first artist to paint the Beatles in her work, possibly she is. Her 1964 collage It’s a Man’s World 1  shows

 John and Ringo, also present in the painting is a Matador called El Beatle (apparently because he was so popular with the crowd).

[Image Can Not Be Found]

Pauline Boty was an extraordinary  girl of the sixties. You can see her in Ken Russell’s 1962 art documentary Pop Goes The Easel on the BBC I Player with her peers Peter Blake, Peter Philips and Derek Boshier. She is brilliant in it and if you are into modern art/post modern art, it’s worth a look. She also had another connection with the Beatles via the  BBC radio programme Public Ear which she contributed to and interviewed them. I can remember reading an article where George Harrison refers to her as Pauline Bottya-hard-days-night-george-4 She died at 28 in 1966 due to a very aggressive type of cancer, what a loss. Have tried to track down that particular radio interview with no luck.

Does this sculpture of Paul do anything for you? Something seems a bit off to me.

I think her Lennon is a bit better.

The Rickenbacker bass was the best part.

Really, it looked good until the very last minute… then something was off.

Those are fascinating! a-hard-days-night-paul-7George (either from Concert for Bangladesh or the Dark Horse Tour) and Ringo (in his Goodnight Vienna outfit) would be good ones for her to do next!

I’m conflicted. I like that he thought of using a Ringo record in his display, but ahdn_paul_01 he destroyed a Ringo record.

Hello! Three LA mural to share:

One, a mural I shared before in this thread, that got restored within the last year because the paint had peeled so badly… of a shot from Mad Day Out. When I have a chance, I’ll get a better shot that’s not through my windshield:

Two, another I posted before, but the link got lost so reposting… from 2013, the NEW mural that was painted on Melrose Ave, that I placed at the end of my Appreciate video:

And three, a new mural for Egypt Station, just off Melrose, not far from where the NEW mural once appeared:

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

There’s this account that I primarily follow for their beautiful and fantastic Bowie art (check it out), but they’ve posted a Lennon:
