Images of a Woman, also known as The Tokyo Painting is one of those rare Beatles memorabilia pieces that not many people have heard about. It is an abstract collaboration painted and signed by John, Paul, George and Ringo. In 1966, the fab four were holed up in a Toyko Hilton hotel room, scheduled to play at Budokan Hall in the centre of Tokyo. It was decided that it was too dangerous for them to look around the city, due to the hysteria surrounding their visit and the many reported death threats made against them. Completely bored, someone, possibly Brian Epstein or their Japanesse promoter, Tats Nagashima, suggested that they quietly paint to pass the time with a canvas and paints.
Working by lamp light, positioned in the centre of the canvas, the Beatles each painstakingly painted a corner of the canvas over two nights. Upon its completion, the Beatles signed their work in the centre where the lamp once sat. The painting was originally donated to charity and even disappeared, tucked underneath a bed, for safe keeping for almost twenty years. It has been auctioned off several times over the years, and was last reportedly auctioned in 2012 for around $150,000. It may not be a Picasso, but it is a marvelous expression of individual styles.
