In 1966, The Beatles departed from their earlier records and pushed the boundaries of rock and pop music by releasing their innovative and seminal album Revolver
. Capturing The Beatles' new direction, and visually representing their sound, Klaus Voormann's Revolver
cover artwork became instantly iconic. It went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Cover / Graphic Arts on 2nd March 1967 - the first time for a rock and pop album.
Now, 50 years on, Genesis is delighted to offer a celebratory original mixed media artwork created by Klaus Voormann. Featuring a pen and ink drawing that represents the making of this historic Beatles cover, an archival Giclée print on to cotton rag paper is individually embellished with collaged elements, hand-painted in watercolours by Klaus Voormann.
Only 250 artworks will be created. Each artwork is unique and individually signed by Klaus Voormann.
