Lot 616: Striking limited edition semi-glossy 16 x 20 photo of John and Yoko side-by-side taken by photographer Jack Mitchell, numbered 13/75, titled and signed in the lower border in felt tip by the photographer, "John Lennon & Yoko Ono—1980—13/75—Jack Mitchell." Also signed on the reverse in pencil, "Jack Mitchell, Negative #4092-2-5." In fine condition, with trivial rippling to top edge. This photograph was taken shortly before Lennon's death and another from this session was used on the cover of the December 1980 memorial issue of People magazine. Mitchell was considered one of the premier arts photographers of the 20th century and his work is held in many important collections, including the Smithsonian Institution and Baltimore Museum of Art.
