    Description

    The Beatles Yellow Submarine Concept Art (United Artists/King Features, 1968). "Once upon a time... or maybe twice... there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland." These are the opening words to this landmark animated Beatles feature film. The man behind the style and art direction of this film was Heinz Edelmann (1934 - 2009). This is a pair of original concept pieces for this film from his hand. He has titled his rough drawings "Personality Designs." They are on trimmed paper measuring 16" x 11", all done in graphite. The first drawing has Moses, Freud, Shakespeare, and Napoleon with Josephine. The second one with more dramatic shading has Moses, Freud, and Napoleon with Josephine. Very rare concept design artwork. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good to Fine condition.
