Hamburg Days Prints

Klaus Voormann

In 1995, Genesis Publications commissioned Klaus Voorman to undertake a series of six photo-realistic paintings depicting the years he spent with The Beatles in Hamburg, 1960-62. During this seminal time, while The Beatles honed their stage craft, Klaus studied art at the city’s Meisterschule, stepping in as an occasional bass player for the band (Klaus later recorded on solo albums by George Harrison, John Lennon and Ringo Starr). 

While he is a Grammy-award winning musician, as a visual artist Klaus is perhaps best known for his iconic Beatles Revolver and Anthology album sleeves.

In the creation of his paintings Klaus built sets and used actors to recreate memories from his days with The Beatles. The project grew and a two-volume book publication resulted. In HAMBURG DAYS, Klaus’s paintings and drawings are featured side by side with Astrid Kircherr’s photography from the era.

Genesis offers the full series of Klaus’s six oil paintings, and six of his drawings, exclusively to collectors. Each artwork is available as a signed limited edition print.

Paul McCartney: 'Klaus was part of a group of The Beatles' friends in Hamburg. His "memory drawings" of our Hamburg days are not only beautiful drawings in themselves, but capture the spirit of the times.'

The Artist

Hamburg Days Prints

'The really good thing about Klaus and his drawings is that - unlike many other people - he was actually there!' Paul McCartney

Later Klaus would come to record on solo albums by George Harrison, John Lennon and Ringo Starr. Celebrated a Grammy-award winning musician, as a visual artist Klaus is best known for his iconic Beatles Revolver and Anthology album sleeves.
