John Lennon followed his success as a member of The Beatles with a successful solo career, during which he often collaborated with his wife, Yoko Ono. Victor Hugo was an artist and assistant to Andy Warhol at The Factory and the partner of fashion designer Halston. It was his job to recruit the subjects for Warhol's Sex Parts prints and Torso Series of paintings. According to Ronnie Cutrone, "Victor Hugo... would recruit people from the baths in those days... The choreography was basically strip and make yourself comfortable." Victor Hugo himself appeared in a few of each. While John Lennon's role in Warhol's social circle was probably a little different from Victor Hugo's, it is clear that their paths still crossed. Warhol liked to surround himself with people that were like him, in other words, people that were creative geniuses. Therefore, John Lennon had to be around sometimes. John Lennon, like so many other stars of the time, also appeared in a few prints made by Warhol.- Pat Hackett, editor of The Warhol Diaries Image rights: The purchaser is acquiring ownership rights only of the physical work of art described herein, and that this transfer of ownership of the physical work of art does not convey to the purchaser any copyright or reproduction rights except (a) the right to display the physical work of art and (b) reproduce the work only in an exhibition catalog relating to exhibit of the work, and in no other medium.
