Everybody loves the Beatles. This artwork brings the inspiring album cover from 'Beatles For Sale' on canvas, using high grade acrylics and artistic blend of colors and unique brush strokes.

There is an interesting story behind the album's cover photo which inspired me to create this painting. In the fall of 1964, Brian, Robert Freeman and the Beatles had a meeting to discuss the cover of their next album, due for Christmas. They decide it had to be a gatefold sleeve, in colour and taken on an outside location. This was the first Beatles album to feature a gatefold cover.

On a wintry day at the end of 1964 Robert Freeman took the four to London’s Hyde Park, near the Albert memorial. The guys didn’t have to dress up. They wore their usual black outfits, white shirts and black shawls. The rich autumnal colors and unsmiling, weary-looking Beatles reflected the downbeat mood of the songs on the album.

Beatles for Sale was the fourth studio album by the Beatles, released on 4 December 1964 in the United Kingdom. The album hit the UK number one spot and retained that position for 11 of the 46 weeks that it spent in the Top 20. Beatles for Sale did not surface as a regular album in the US until 1987. In its place was Beatles '65 which featured eight songs from Beatles for Sale, plus the A and B-side of "I Feel Fine" and "I'll Be Back" from the UK's A Hard Day's Night album. Beatles '65 enjoyed a nine-week run at the top of the US charts from January 1965.
