    Beatles - Astrid Kirchherr Large Format Photograph of John Lennon, "Black Portrait 1" (Hamburg, 1962). John was the Beatle closest to Stuart Sutcliffe - they'd met at Liverpool College of Art and soon became flatmates - and was greatly affected by his death. This beautiful, somber portrait was taken in Sutcliffe's studio in April 1962, as John paid his respects to his fallen comrade. Photographer Astrid Kirchherr has boldly signed at lower left in silver marker. Printed 2009 by Grauwert, Hamburg. A striking large print, the image measuring 20" x 24" matted to an overall size of 27.5" x 31.5". In Fine condition. This print was exhibited at Beatlemania Hamburg. From the Ulf Kruger Archive.
