Florida artist warns fans about sale of Lennon art
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 01/11/10 7:15 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

The artwork of John Lennon is in the Beatles News again, as it is appearing this week in Miami. But one man, Gary Arseneau, is not happy about that.

According to Arseneau, the "Artwork of John Lennon" traveling road show is fraud by his widow Yoko Ono, along with her business associates, Legacy Fine Art Production, Pacific Edge Gallery and others, to cash in at the expense of the unsuspecting consumer and legitimate artists, not to mention John Lennon's true legacy.

Arseneau, an artist and creator of original lithographs based in Fernandina Beach, Florida, said, "Since 1986, Yoko Ono and her business associates have misrepresented more than 35,000 posthumous black-and-white and/or colorized altered forgeries for sale to the public at $500 to $8,000 or more each, grossing for well over $100 million, as 'lithographs,' 'serigraphs,' 'woodcuts' and 'etchings' ie., original works of visual art, not to mention its' deceptive promotion as the 'Artwork of John Lennon.'"

"John Lennon died in 1980. The dead don't create artwork," Arseneau says.
