    Description

    Beatles Rock n' Roll Music Volume 2 Cover Original Art by Michael Bryan (Capitol, 1980). An iconic image of the Beatles as they looked when they first arrived in America was the subject of this original portrait, created for a single-LP reissue of the second half of a compilation double album, originally issued in 1976 with a "1950s Nostalgia" styled cover. For this reissue, artist Michael Bryan was given access to the Capitol Records photo archives, and he chose four separate images of the lads, circa 1964, montaging them with various other people milling in the background. To create the finished art, Bryan painted directly on printed "brownline" images; for the Beatles' faces, Bryan freehanded the images, as the brownline photo montage did not come out too clearly in this area. The final finished piece is in mixed media on mounted paper, with an approximate image area of 20.25" x 20". Other than a few minor contact marks and handling, the art is in Excellent condition. A note about the making of the piece, written and signed by the artist, is included.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
