Lot 612: Excellent color limited edition 17 x 25.25 lithograph entitled 'Taxman,' depicting a warthog and a military official crushing the life and money from a man via a rolling press machine as a line of citizens await the same gruesome fate, numbered 714/850, signed in the lower border in pencil by Harrison, as well as the artist, Keith West. Housed in its original Genesis Publications Limited folder. In fine condition. One of the first songs composed by Harrison, 'Taxman' opened the Beatles' 1966 album Revolver with a lyrical assault on the unjust progressive tax levied by British Labour Party head Harold Wilson. A humorous, if not dystopian, visual representation of the classic Beatles tune.
