John Lennon Framed/matted Stone Lithograph ("baby Grand Piano") Unique Piece For Sale

Up for sale in a John Lennon framed and matted self-portrait stone lithograph. John is composing at his white “baby grand piano” in the living room at the Dakota. The joy he feels from the creation of music is depicted by the notes issuing forth from the flowers.This piece is numbered with a limited edition of 3/300 in pencil. It is also signed in pencil by Yoko Ono. It was printed from the original that was given to Yoko Ono by John Lennon in the 70's. Stone lithographs are hand-pulled on a printing press using stone plates with the image transferred to the fine art paper. (Molds were then destroyed)There are several "embossed stamps" on this piece. Each limited edition fine art print is authenticated by John Lennon’s embossed signature, the embossed printer and publisher’s mark, Yoko Ono Lennon’s hand-signature, and John’s personal chop mark. This piece is fairly heavy with the aluminum frame. I might recommend shipping without the frame.... It measures 29 inches wide and 22 inches tall. The matting is professional, and gives this pieces a great look! The piece has been in storage, and appears to be preserved quite well. You can, however, see how the piece was attached through the paper. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me! Thank you for looking!

The following research was done by a trusted art collector/ member: It listed in the 1990s BAG ONE portfolio. Original was 1974. Don't know list price in 90s. The paper is Arches Aquarelle, 100% cotton/rag with a gel center and rag/cotton backing that is separated after painting. It won't smear, been around about 500 years. A truly fine paper. It's also likely to be the reason the frame marks show through. It's a pre-stretched canvas and takes form without any problem. It can be gently repaired. Lithograph vs. Serigraph/Silk Screen. There is an entirely different process used in making each type of image. A lithograph is a very high quality machine printed image made by using a 4 color separation process much like how the covers of any color magazine is printed. A serigraph is a silk screened image. With a serigraph the original painting is scanned and separated digitally into each and every color found in the original. A separate silk screen is created for each and every color that was scanned. There are usually from 80 to 130 individual colors in the majority of some serigraphs. Each silk screen is precisely placed over the serigraph paper, and then by hand squeegee, paint for a specific color is applied. This single application of one paint color must then dry for at least 24 to 48 hours before the next color paint can be applied. It can take a serographer up to 6 months to produce 1 run of as many as 500 serigraphs of the same image. Serigraphs are also produced in much smaller numbers than lithographs, and they are as costly to produce, and as close to the actual original painting as you can possibly get. There's a very noticeable difference in the high quality of a serigraph (technically original art) compared to a litho (reproductiion). The work was published by BAG ONE out of NY. The imprint should prove it.**The frame is a professional screw aluminum/metal frame.
